Contact the Red River Planning District for a Building Permit
The first step is to contact the Red River Planning District (formerly known as the Selkirk and District Planning Area Board) for a building permit application.

After contacting the RRPD, the next step is to visit the R.M. Office for a Lot Grade Application, Civic Address Sign Fee and Private Approach Permit (if needed).  If the lot you are planning to build on does not have an existing approach, you will need to get a permit to build a new approach.
 
The R.M. will process your information, complete your lot grade permit and submit it to the RRPD so they will release your building permit.
 
Please note that starting June 1, 2014, all residents are required by By-Law No. 4219 to pay for their civic address sign.  The fee will be approximately $40.
 
What you will need to bring to the R.M. Office
 
Site Plan
A site plan showing the location of the proposed building(s); must include locations from at least two perpendicular property lines, location of driveway and location of any existing structures in relation to the proposed building(s).  This information is needed to set your lot grade and ensure water will drain away from the house.
 
Building Cross Section
A plan showing a section view of the proposed building(s) foundation, basement windows (if applicable) and main floor.  This information is needed to assist in setting your lot grade.
 
Lot Grade Permit Fee and Deposit
A payment of $2500 is required for residential lots.  It is broken down as follows:
 
- A deposit of $2000 is required and will be refunded after the home is built, landscaping is completed and the lot grade final inspection is done and approved.
 
- A lot grade fee of $500 is charged for the lot grade survey, installing the lot grade stake, lot grade administration and on-site visits.
 
Private Approach Permit Fee and Deposit (If Applicable)
A payment of $450 is required for residential lots.  It is broken down as follows:
 
- A deposit of $350 is required and will be refunded after the approach is completed and the final inspection is done and approved.
 
- A private approach fee of $100 is charged for the permit administration and the on-site inspections.
 
Civic Address Signage Fee
A payment of approximately $40 is required for the purchase of the civic address sign plate and sign pole.
 
What the R.M. does for you
 
The R.M. will review your building plans, visit the building site and complete a land survey to determine what your lot grade will need to be and install a lot grade stake with the required lot grade elevation.
 
Next the R.M. will complete your Lot Grade Permit and submit it to the RRPD.  As soon as the RRPD accepts the Lot Grade Permit they will provide you with a building permit.
 
Once the civic address sign is made, the R.M. will install the sign post and sign beside your driveway at no cost.
 
Once the building is built, the roof downspouts and splash pads (or approved equals) are installed and the landscaping grading is complete, please contact the R.M. to schedule a final inspection for your lot.
 
The R.M. will then visit your lot for a final inspection.  Once verified that the lot grading requirements have been completed in accordance with the Lot Grade By-Law No. 4255, your deposit will be refunded.  Your deposit may not be refunded if there is damage to municipal property, lot grading is not complete, roof downspouts are not installed, and so forth.  The R.M. will inform you and require you fix the problems before the deposit is refunded.
 
NOTE:  Please be familiar with the "RESPONSIBILITY OF PROPERTY OWNERS" Section of the Lot Grade By-Law No. 4255 (Section 7.00) as you, the home owner, will be responsible for maintenance of your lot grade, control of storm water, maintenance of roof downspouts, sump pump discharge, splash pads (or approved equals) and maintenance of swales.
