Building Bylaw Changes

The City of Penticton is currently undergoing changes to permit processing and inspections as part of the modernization of the Building Bylaw which is scheduled for adoption by March 2018. These changes are being made to align with the BC Building Act and to improve efficiencies within the department to better service our designers and builders while ensuring the needs of the community are being met.

Over the next few months new information will be posted to keep you updated in the development of the Building Bylaw and associated permit and inspection requirement changes. We look forward to keeping the lines of communication open and welcome feedback via
