Building Permit Applications

A Building Permit is your formal permission to begin the construction, demolition, addition or renovation on your property. As part of the Building Permit process, you must submit a Building Permit Application, where Township of King staff review your plans to ensure they comply with the Ontario Building Code, Township Zoning By-laws and other Applicable Law. Once staff are satisfied the application meets the above criteria a permit may be issued, at which time you are permitted to start construction. 

The Ontario Building Code sets out the minimum requirements for such work and is particularly concerned with your health and safety and that of other homeowners, building occupants, future owners and the community.

More information on Applicable Law can be found on the "Applicable Law" tab.
