CSRD Building Bylaw No. 660 was adopted by the CSRD Board of Directors February, 15, 2018.   Starting March 5, 2018, Bylaw No. 660 implements a revised building regulation and inspection service in Electoral Area F (North Shuswap) for reasons of health, safety and protection of persons and property.

Starting March 5, 2018 most building permits issued in Electoral Area F in the communities of Lee Creek, Scotch Creek, Celista, Anglemont, Magna Bay and St. Ives will require six (6) inspections instead of the current three (3) during construction and prior to the granting of building occupancy:

1.         Footing Construction (before concrete)
2.         Pre-Backfill
3.         Underslab Plumbing Rough In
4.         Framing Construction
5.         Insulation and Vapour and Air Barrier
6.         Final Inspection

Inspection numbers 1, 4 and 6 were previously required.  Inspection numbers 2, 3 and 5 are new.

It is the goal of the CSRD to make the implementation of the three (3) new inspections in Electoral Area F as smooth as possible.
