All Permit Applications and fees are to be submitted to the Wheatland County for processing.
Once the required information is submitted and processed, Building Permit applications or Private Sewage Permit applications along with supporting documentation is forwarded to our team for review, issuance, monitoring and scheduling of your inspections.
Plumbing, Gas and Electrical permits are issued at the County office and forwarded to our team once complete for monitoring and inspections.
How long is your permit good for? Dependent on your scope of work and project-your permit has a timeframe upon which work needs to be completed. This is in accordance with the Municipality’s Quality Management Plan, which sets the framework for when projects need to be inspected and how long the permits can be valid for. This timeframe is noted on your permit. You may receive an extension if needed. This needs to be supplied to our office in writing and noting the additional time you are requesting.
When should you call for an inspection? Your required inspection stage(s) may be found on your permit under “Permit Conditions”.
You will also note on your permit that work needs to start within 90 days and must continue every 120 days. This is in accordance with the Safety Codes Act, legislated by the province of Alberta. We follow up on all permits issued to ensure this criteria is met and that your project is moving forward and to ensure no vital inspection stages are met. If any scope or needs of your project change, where these timeframes cannot be met, please contact our team to arrange and establish alternate arrangements.
Please feel free to contact our team for any questions or additional details or contact the Wheatland County at www.wheatlandcounty.ca or 403-934-3321.
