West Grey now offers online application for building permits

WEST GREY, ON—The Municipality of West Grey now offers the ability to apply for and track building permits online.

The move is part of an ongoing strategy to streamline processes, increase accessibility and provide better customer service.

“We welcome this new service and know it will make building in West Grey even easier and more convenient,” said Mayor Christine Robinson. “West Grey is growing and we will continue to find innovative solutions to make sure that growth is sustained for years to come.”

Residents and builders can now create an online account to create and submit building permit applications. The system also allows for inspection requests and sends notifications to keep a clear line of communication. The new system was developed in collaboration with evolvepermits.ca and can be accessed from the West Grey website.

A building permit is needed prior to building or demolition and once approved means the construction complies with the Ontario Building Code and local bylaws.

In person applications will still be accepted at the West Grey Administration Building.
