Notice for Applicants:
On May 1, 2023, the RDCK as per the updated BC Building Code will require every new building to deliver a level of energy-efficiency performance equivalent to 20% more energy efficient over a 2018 baseline building. With this increase in Energy Step Code requirements, small residential homes (Part 9) will be required to meet Step 3, with more complex buildings (Part 3) required to meet Step 2.
This change will not affect existing in-progress building permits; however, applications received after May 1, 2023 will need to show that the design of the building meets the new mandatory Step Code requirements. Please see the Step Code page for more details.
Applications for building permits are available by clicking on the link: RDCK Building Permit Application Form or at any of the Building Offices during scheduled hours.
Submitting a Permit Application Electronically - A scanned copy of the Permit Application form can be submitted via email to email@example.com along with supporting documentation.
Emailed attachments cannot exceed 10 MB per email. If your files are too large to attach, please email the above address and a ShareFile link will be provided so that you can upload your documents.
Notice for Applicants: The RDCK cautions applicants that they should expect longer than normal permit processing and issuance timelines (currently 4-6 weeks) due to historically high construction activity and a record number of permit applications in the region – a trend that is reflected across BC. We encourage applicants to submit their permit applications well in advance of their planned construction.
Applicants should also ensure that they come prepared with a “counter ready application”, meaning that it is complete and free from errors or omissions. By doing so, you’ll help reduce processing time and do your part to make sure your project stays on schedule. Please consult the Building Brochure in the link below to assist you with preparing your supporting materials for your application. Thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
Attention to sustainability in planning and building your project will create a quality building with reduced long-term utility costs. Use these checklists to help plan, design and build with goals of sustainability and energy-efficiency.
