Forms and Permits

Permits are required for Development, New Builds/Renovations and Demolition

There are two application steps involved when a resident wants to do any type of development, new construction, or renovatios within the Resort Village of Glen Harbour.

First, the Development Permit application and approval; Secondly the Building Permit application and approval.

 The Development permit must be approved prior to the building permit; however, the applicant can submit both the development permit and building permit applications at the same time.

 Development Permits

A Development Permit is a document issued by the Council of the Resort Village of Glen Harbour that authorizes development pursuant to the Resort Village of Glen Harbour’s Zoning Bylaw 22/2013, but does not include a building permit.  

Development is defined by The Planning and Development Act, 2007 as “the carrying out of any building, engineering, mining or operations in, on or over land or making of any material change in the use or intensity of use of any building, or land.  Most land use activities are defined as development and therefore, require a municipal development permit from a municipality with a zoning bylaw.  

The definition and regulations for development are found in the Zoning Bylaw 22/2013 which is regulated by The Planning and Development Act, 2007 (provincial legislation).

 Development cannot commence prior to obtaining a permit!

After the development permit has been approved, the Administrator will process the new building permit application (all required documentation must accompany the Building Permit Application).  The Administrator then forwards the building permit application along with the plans and documentation to Professional Building Inspectors (PBI) (who has been contracted by the Resort Village of Glen Harbour to provide building inspection and enforcement services for review).  PBI will do a plan review and return it to the Administrator for final approval.

Building Permits

Building Permits relate to the design, construction, placement, alteration, repair, renovation, demolition, relocation, removal, use or occupancy of buildings and structures in accordance with the building standards. Building standards include the Resort Village of Glen Harbour’s building bylaws, Province of Saskatchewan’s Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act (UBAS Act), and the National Building Code of Canada.

 A building permit is required whenever work regulated by the UBAS Act and Regulations is to be undertaken.

 Professional Building Inspections, Inc. (PBI) has been contracted by the Resort Village of Glen Harbour to provide building inspection and enforcement services.  Licensed Building Officials employed by PBI have the authority to enforce the building standards under Part V of the UBAS Act.

 Building Permit Process

 (1)     Applicant completes the Resort Village of Glen Harbour building permit application, as well as the applicable PBI – Permit Information Form.

 (2)     Applicant compiles ALL required information noted on the PBI – Plan Review Checklist for the applicable project type, as well as completes and signs the Email Consent Form, and submits all information in PDF format (preferred) to the municipal office.

 (3)     Municipal Official completes the top portion of the PBI – Permit Information Form and forwards all required information to PBI for a plan review.

 (4)     PBI returns the plan review to the municipal office with building permit approval recommendations.

 (5)     If the Municipal Official agrees to issue the building permit based on the plan review results, then a building permit will only be issued after payment of the building permit fee is paid in full.

 Building Permit Fees

 Building permit fees are based on:

 (a)  municipal administration fee, as stated in the building bylaws;

 (b)  service provider fees based on project type, size and/or value of construction, as well as travel fees and GST, in accordance with the service agreement between PBI and the Resort Village of Glen Harbour, and

 (c)   a maintenance fee charged by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA).

 Note that all permit fees must be paid in full to the municipal office prior to a permit being issued and are subject to applicable taxes.  A building permit is not considered valid unless permit fees are paid in full.

 No prior construction should commence until a valid permit has been obtained and be posted on site for Inspectors to access.

 Note:  After the plan review is completed and the building permit is issued by the municipal office, the owner or owner's agent (i.e. contractor) must call PBI for all required inspections as identified in the Plan Review report.  Failure to do so may result in enforcement action at additional fees to the owner.  See link - Required on site inspections for Residential Building Projects

 Demolition Permits

 A demolition permit is required for the removal of assessable buildings and/or structures from a property.  There is a permit fee and deposit required as stated in the RVGH Building Bylaw.  Upon complete of the demolition, the building and/or structure that was demolition is removed from your tax assessment.  Once the site is cleaned up to the satisfaction of the Village, the deposit is returned.  Click here

 Potential Consequences for Not Obtaining a Valid Building Permit

 Issuance of a Stop Work Order, ordering applicant to stop the work until a valid building permit is obtained. 

  • Issuance of an Order to Comply, which can order the removal of the structure entirely or order the removal of materials to facilitate inspection at the owner’s expense.
  • Issuance of an Order to have inspections or tests be conducted by a professional engineer at the owner’s expense.
  • Fines of up to $10,000, as prescribed in Section 22 of the UBAS Act.
