Length of Time to Obtain a Building Permit for a House, Townhouse and Their Accessory Structures

The time to obtain a building permit depends on the type and complexity of the permit. Permits for simple jobs (like fences, decks or sheds) may use the "Fast Track" service and receive their permits on the same day. Permits for new residential structures may take 4 - 6 weeks to complete the review process.
