  • 3 Day Permit

    The City of London Building Division offers a 3 Day review process, which can expedite the review of certain types of permit applications.  Typical examples of permit applications eligible for 3 Day review include:

    • Single detached dwellings
    • Small commercial/industrial renovations requiring architectural review only.
    • Small residential projects

    Consult with City staff when applying to determine if a 3 Day permit is possible for your application.

    • Additional permit fees are applicable to 3 Day applications.  (See By-law B-7, Schedule A for current fee)
    • All applicable drawings and information must be provided at time of application.  Partial submissions cannot be submitted as a 3 Day Permit.
    • All required approvals must be in place prior to applying. (i.e.  Zoning, Site Plan Approval, Upper Thames Conservation, Heritage)
    • A 3 Day application expedites the review process only.  Issuance of a building permit will proceed once all approvals are in place and any deficiencies have been addressed.
    • Acceptance of 3 Day applications is subject to staff availability at the time of application.
