The inspection and approval process for new developments minimizing observed problems that arise from improperly graded residential lots. Changes in alterations to surface grades on existing lots can also have a potential impact on both the property making changes as well as adjacent property owners.


With each lot grading permit application, the City reviews the lot grading plan provided at the time of application to ensure it is consistent with the approved Surface Drainage Plan for the area.

A Performance Damage Agreement deposit, as outlined on the permit application as well as in the Surface Drainage Bylaw is required to ensure the completion of grading of the lot as well as cover costs of repairs to City infrastructure that may occur during construction.
