Summer Village of Argentia Beach Development
If you are building, renovating, demolishing, or moving buildings, a development permit is required. Development Permits are approving the development only, ensuring that the development complies with the Land Use Bylaws. You may apply for a development permit at the Summer Villages Office or on our web site. Please ensure that all owners that are on title have signed the Development Permit Application. If all signatures are not on the application it will delay the processing of the permit. Additionally, permits are required for building, demolition, electrical, plumbing and gas. These permits must be obtained from Superior Safety Codes Inc.@ 1-888-358-5545 or @ 403-358-5545 once your Development Permit has been approved. For inquiries information please contact our Development Officer at 780-586-2494. Our part time Contractor Development Officer is in the office Saturday’s a.m. only for appointments. “Please ensure all your development including fencing and landscaping is within your lot boundary”. You can view the Land Use Bylaw on our web site.
Please Note: Placards are issued with the development Permit and must be in full view at the work site at all times while the work is in progress. Failure to follow the process of having the required Permits could result in a Stop Order being issued by the Development Officer.
Development Safety Codes:
Please be aware that a property owner/developer is responsible for ensuring all aspects of the Safety Codes Act are followed during construction. It is important that qualified designers/architects/contractors are hired to design and construct your project.
Security Deposit Agreement:
A Security Deposit Agreement Form is required from the ratepayer when a new building is being constructed or a renovation is being done. The Agreement form and Security Deposit must be submitted to the Summer Villages Office when the Application for the Development Permit has been approved. The Development Permit will not be issued until the deposit and form have been received.
