• Building Permit Application Procedure During COVID-19 and Exemption of Re-roofing – Shingle Replacement ONLY

    Date: May 6th, 2020

    RE: Building Permit Application Procedure During COVID-19
    and Exemption of Re-roofing – Shingle Replacement ONLY

    Building Department presses forward with application processing. The Town of Smooth Rock Falls continues to provide building services despite some limitations as per recent Provincial Emergency Orders aimed at minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
    What this means for Smooth Rock Falls is that the Town will continue to receive building permit applications. Although building permit applications will be accepted and processed, permits will not be issued for non-essential construction projects until such time as the construction ban has been lifted by the Province.

    For permits that were approved and issued prior to April 4, 2020 work may continue. Any required emergency repairs will be reviewed case by case.

    Applications will be accepted electronically to rdesbiens@townsrf.ca, by mail to Town of Smooth Rock Falls Building Department 142 First Ave, P.O. Box 249, ON P0L 2B0 or can be deposited in the drop box found the main entrance door of the Municipal Hall. Please ensure that all proper contact information has been submitted with application. Application fees must be paid by way of cheque payable to the “Town of Smooth Rock Falls.” The building permit application can be obtained on this link http://www.smoothrockfalls.ca/living-here/building-and-renovating/building-demolition-permits/

    Please note that on May 4th, 2020, Council replaced the existing building by-law with by-law #2020-06. This new by-law exempts reroofing for shingle replacement ONLY. This will allow residents to complete replacement of shingles without the requirement of a permit. Replacement of a metal roof will require a permit.

    For further information concerning the submission of building permit applications please contact:

    Remi Desbiens, Building Inspector rdesbiens@townsrf.ca or (705) 338-2717, Ext. 3

    Thank you,

    THE CORPERATION OF THE TOWN OF SMOOTH ROCK FALLS
