Development permit applications must be submitted in advance of safety code permit applications. Applications may take up to 40 days before approvals are granted, and development must be started and diligently pursued within 12 months of the date of the development permit approval. If Safety Code permits are required, you must apply prior to beginning your project. We ask that you make the required application 6-8 weeks prior to your anticipated construction stat date. A building permit is required to begin a construction, demolition, addition or renovation project on your property.  The owner is responsible for being compliant with building regulations.  Failure to get a building permit can cause construction delays, legal action and/or the removal of work already completed. Applications are available online or in person at Westlock County Administration Building with the Planning and Community Services Offices.
