Whether you're looking to build your dream home, renovate, or just build a storage shed in the back yard, we're here to help.

Here are some of the things you'll need to get going: from permit forms, to a wide range of guides to help construct your project - big or small.

Building permit application form

This form is for construction taking place in the rural regions from Lepreau to Harvey, as well as the municipalities of St. George, Saint Andrews, McAdam and Harvey.

Building/Development Permit form

For other municipalities (St. Stephen, Campobello, Grand Manan and Blacks Harbour) please contact your town/village office.

If your property is near a waterway, river or stream, you may need a permit from the provincial department of Environment. See the info here.
