City of Revelstoke Building Permits are granted in accordance with City Bylaws and the British Columbia Building Code. Building Inspectors deal primarily with the regulation and inspection of new construction and renovations, alterations, additions and changes in occupancy of existing buildings. Online versions of the BC Building, Plumbing and Fire Codes are now available free of charge. To access the BC Code documents, go to www.bcpublications.ca.
Prior to obtaining a permit to demolish a building or structure, the owner must:
provide to the City a vacancy date;
pay the applicable fees as set out in the City’s Fees and Charges Bylaw; and
ensure that all municipal services and other services are capped and terminated at the property line to the satisfaction of the building official or the City’s engineering manager.
Every owner must ensure that, on completion of all demolition procedures, all debris and fill are cleared, and the site is levelled or graded, or made safe if levelling and grading are not possible. Every owner must ensure adherence to the “Safety measures at construction and demolition sites” requirements set out in Part 8, Division B of the building code.
