Applying for a development permit
Development permit applications should be submitted in advance of safety codes permit applications. Development must be started and diligently pursued within 12 months of the date of the development permit approval as permits will expire. If Safety Codes permits are required, you must apply prior to beginning your project.
Development is the act of changing the use of land by:
- Construction buildings
- Replacing or repairing existing buildings
- Relocating or demolishing a building
- Changing the land by grading, tree clearing, excavating or stockpiling
- Changing the Type of Business being conducted (occupancy)
Development permits are regulated by the Town of Drumheller’s Land Use Bylaw. A development permit allows a specific type of use on a parcel of land. The development permit application is available online or in person at the Town Hall.
