PLEASE NOTE THAT BRUDERHEIM'S LAND USE BYLAW HAS BEEN UPDATED. SOME DETAILS RELATED TO DEVELOPMENT PERMITS MAY HAVE CHANGED. PLEASE CONTACT THE TOWN OFFICE WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
A development permit is required for most new businesses, construction, a change of use to land or buildings, and major renovations or structural changes to existing buildings.
Please see Section 2 of the Land Use Bylaw for more information related to what activities require a development permit.
If you wish to develop or build on your property, or to start a business, please fill out a development permit application form and submit it to the Town Office, located at 5017 Queen Street. The application will be evaluated based on whether it meets requirements set out in the Land Use Bylaw and what possible negative impact the proposed development may have on neighbours.
If the proposed development is a discretionary use as outlined in the Land Use Bylaw, letters outlining your proposed development will be delivered to surrounding neighbours and other potentially affected parties. They will then have two weeks to voice opposition by filing a notice of appeal to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB). If no opposition is received, your development permit will be issued and mailed to you. If a development permit is denied, you may also file a notice of appeal to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board regarding their decision.
For more information about development permits, please see Part Four of the Land Use Bylaw.
For information on the fees related to different developments, please see our Fees and Charges Schedule.
