All of the required details for the proposed works must be submitted with the application before it is considered complete.

Four (4 ) copies each of the following plans must be submitted and individually folded with your permit application along with other related design drawings specified in this information sheet:

  • Legal survey of subject property and a location map in relation to major intersections (If this is a separate plan, only 1 copy is required).

  • Site Plan showing proposed works, property boundaries, and existing site conditions (e.g. grades, structures, and watercourses).

  • Sediment Control Plans.

  • Site Rehabilitation/Restoration/Landscape Plans.
