Building and Development Permits

Permits are needed to conduct building and development activities in the City of Spruce Grove, and can help avoid major problems in the future. Both building permits and development permits are reviewed to ensure that they meet with the Bylaws and Development Land Use Guidelines.

Building permits deal with structural stability of buildings and the health and safety of the building's occupants. Development permits deal primarily with a development's impact on surrounding properties. A building permit application will not be processed until such time as the development permit has been issued, however both may be applied for at the same time.
