Building Permits


Development Permits are required if you are changing the use of the property or the foot print of buildings on your property (ie: adding anything new or removing structures - removal requires a Demolition Permit) and are subject to the Zoning Bylaw No. 02/14 and provincial legislation. Approved permits are provided yearly to SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency). Any changes may affect your assessment value, which affects your property taxes.
