Building and development permits are still being issued during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have returned to fairly normal opening hours at our office (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) with social distancing measures in effect. Some of our staff are working from home, however. For that reason, do allow more time to connect via phone, as some have forwarded office phones to personal cellphones. NOTE: Our Covid-19 processes here.

Note: due to a heavy volume of applications, our expected processing time for new permits is two weeks.
