Requirements for Demolition of Buildings/Structures
Demolition permits are required for the demolition of any commercial and residential structures when the work proposed is not in conjunction with new construction. Demolition permits are not required for residential pools or for residential detached structures less than 200 sq ft.
To apply for a demolition permit, bring the completed demolition application (pdf/236kb/4pp) and the supporting documents to the One Stop Shop permit services counter for review by a plans examiner. Upon approval a demolition permit will be issued.
For demolition in conjunction with new construction, include the area of demolition on the construction documents. The review of the proposed demolition will be concurrent with the review of the new construction. A seperate demolition permit will not be necessary unless the demolition is requested to occur prior to final plan approval of the new construction.
For demolition not in conjunction with new construction, a pre-application meeting is necessary for review and approval of a post-demolition plan.
NOTE: IF MOVING A BUILDING YOU MUST APPLY FOR A WIDE LOAD PERMIT.
