Building Regulation/Inspection is a function of the Development Services Department.

The CSRD Building Department works to protect you and your property by ensuring that buildings conform to codes and regulations. Our goal is to help you avoid costly and time consuming pitfalls by providing permits, inspection services and advice on the Building Bylaw and the BC Building Code.

The CSRD does NOT issue the following permits:

Service Area

New Building Regulation/Inspection Service

The new and expanded service is proposed to begin January 1, 2018 in Electoral Areas B, E, and F. It will require property owners to apply to the CSRD for and receive a building permit prior to beginning construction on their property. Six building inspections will be completed by a CSRD Building Inspector during construction.

Currently, Building Inspection Services are provided to only one area of the CSRD. That portion of Electoral Area F, extending from Lee Creek to St. Ives lying along the North shore of the Shuswap Lake. Use the Online Mapping to find your property.
