Building inspection services changing to better meet community needs
Building inspection services are currently operated out of each of the City’s six municipal service centres with the main administrative offices of the Building Division located at the Lindsay Service Centre. The realignment will see part-time hours in some offices to accommodate increased development activity in other centres.
“We have been analysing our business unit in order to improve processes overall and as a result beginning September 21 we will have inspectors available for walk-ins, telephone inquiries and appointments between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., on regularly scheduled office days,” explained Chief Building Official Susanne Murchison. “Inspectors may be available at other times depending upon workloads.”
Ms. Murchison said drop-ins are welcomed during scheduled times at any office; however, your local area inspector will have a more robust knowledge of your specific geographic area.
Applicants can also attend any Service Centre within the City to drop off building permit related documents or make payments and staff will circulate to the appropriate inspector.
