The primary role of the Building Department is to promote and assist development in compliance with Federal, Provincial, County and local regulations. Building codes ensure that structures are safe, not only for today but for many years to come.

A building permit is your formal permission to begin construction or demolition. It means that the Municipality of West Grey has approved plans for any new structure, addition or renovation. Approved plans must comply with the Ontario Building Code, local zoning by-laws, and other applicable laws and regulations. Building permits regulate types of construction allowed in the community and ensure that building standards are met. The building permit process protects each homeowner’s interests, as well as those of the community at large, and provides for the erection of safe structures. Permits help ensure that any structural change is safe, legal and sound.
