After you've planned your project, you can apply for a permit by printing and submitting this form. The application will be circulated to various departments for review and approval. The completed form can be emailed to email@example.com or dropped off on the 7th floor of City Hall.
Once approved, you will need to contact a contractor to do the actual work for you, as has been approved through the application. The contractor will inform you as to how much your curb cut will cost. You can get multiple quotes if you wish, based on the approved permit.
You will be responsible to ensure that no other utilities or municipal functions are impacted by the widening of your driveway. Confirm that none of these "obstacles" are in proximity to your project, as it is very costly to have any of these items (re)moved:
- Trees, bus shelters, street signs;
- Hydro poles, telephone poles, cable or phone boxes, or other utilities;
- Storm drains, fire hydrants, mailboxes, or other municipal infrastructure.
Where you are uncertain about underground utilities, you should call Ontario One Call (ON1Call)
Note: Where mistakes are made, or work undertaken without a permit, you will be held responsible for the cost of replacing the infrastructure, grass, curbs, etc. If you have any questions about any steps in the process, please contact Development and Compliance Services at the number to the right.
