The Municipality of Pilot Butte requires and issues building permits because, by law, it is required that the municipality administer and enforce the Provincial Government’s Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act. This Act states that the owner of each building in Saskatchewan shall ensure that the building is designed, constructed, erected, placed, altered, repaired, renovated, demolished, relocated, removed, used or occupied in accordance with building standards.

 

During the time of the build, homes are assessed by Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency.  We are charged a fee for this service. This fee will be included in the cost of the permit once approval is received by the Saskatchewan Government, Ministry of Building Standards and Licencing Branch.

 

When purchasing lots, purchaser must ensure Architectural Controls, where required, is obtained as indicated with a signature by the Architectural Controls Co-ordinator prior to submitting the Development Application to The Town Office. If Architectural Control Approval is required, we are not accepting permits until approval is obtained. When submitting a building permit for a new home, the permit must be submitted by the title holder.

 

For all permits, the first step is the Development Application (Form A1) & Building Application (Form A2).

For all residential builds (excluding new homes), the permit must include:

1.       Development Application (Form A1)
2.       Building Application (Form A2)
3.       Any required forms depending on your build
4.       Site plans, engineered trusses and plan drawings approved by an engineer
5.       Residential - Permit Information Form (Provided by our building inspector)
6.       Residential - Plan Review Checklist (Provided by our building inspector).

For Commercial Builds, the permit must include:

1.       Development Application (Form A1)
2.       Building Application (Form A2)
3.       Any required forms depending on your build
4.       Site plans, engineered trusses and plan drawings approved by an engineer
5.       Commercial – Permit Information Form (Provided by our building inspector)
6.       Commercial – Plan Review Checklist (Provided by our building inspector).

For a new house please provide with each permit application (ensuring that all forms in the package are included and complete)

1.       Development Application (Form A1)
2.       Building Application (Form A2)
3.       Sewer Service Application (Form B1)
4.       Water Service Application (Form B2)
5.       Sewage Back Flow Preventor (Form B3)

10.   Residential - Plan Review Checklist (Provided by our building inspector)
11.   If the property is not owned by the permit holder, the permit holder must also provide a letter of agreement between the owner and permit holder advising who will be responsible for the property tax and utilities.

At this time we have fillable forms for new homes only.

As we are now in an electronic age, for ease and convenience all permits can now be submitted by email to .

 

 

At this point we can approve or decline the application based on the site plans provided the location of the building complies with our zoning bylaw.

 

If the Development Permit is not approved as it does not comply with the Town’s zoning, the builder/developer may appeal to the local Development Appeals Board. If the builder/developer is still not satisfied with the Appeals Board decision, they then may appeal to the Provincial Appeals Board.

 

Once the Development Permit has been approved by the Town Administrator, the building permit is sent to Professional Building Inspections in Emerald Park.

 

For New Homes, the plumber will be required to contact the town 24 hours in advance to arrange for a Town Representative to inspect the Water and Sewer Connection.

 

When all inspections are complete without deficiencies as confirmed by our Building Inspector, and all requirements of the Town of Pilot Butte are met which includes receiving the Real Property Report & Elevation Certificate, the permit holder is in a position to receive 50% of the refundable building deposit. The remainder of the refundable building deposit will be returned to the homeowner once the landscaping is completed.

In the case of Condominium Units and other Developments, where the landscaping and driveways are completed prior to the sale to the new homeowner, the entire deposit will be refunded to the Payee when all the requirements are met.

 

When all inspections are complete, there are requirements that must be met, for permit holder/home owner to receive the refundable building deposit. Please review the DEVELOPMENT and BUILDING INFORMATION that accompanies each permit application.

Please note that we now have included a discretionary use application which will be used when applying for a discretionary use application. There is a $20 fee for a discretionary use application.

The Building Permits that do not require a Development Permit are Renovations or Basement Development; however a Building Permit (Form A2) is still required.

 

Mobile Home Park residents wanting to move in a new mobile home should apply for a permit at least three weeks before the move. Specification sheets and CSA approval forms are required for all new mobile homes. If there is a removal or demolition of a Mobile Home, ‘An Approval to Demolish or Move a Building’ Application must be completed. Professional Building Inspections will review the permit to ensure that it meets all building code requirements and return the information to the Town Office. Residents will then be contacted to collect and pay for their permit. All residents, including those in Walter’s Mobile Home Park should have their building permit approval before starting construction.

 

For new homes you must have your plumber contact the town office to schedule a time for the Water Meter Installation which will be installed by a Town Representative. 

Residents may call Professional Building Inspections directly if they have questions about the Building Codes.
