Development Permits
The first step of any project is to obtain development approval

Who can apply?

An owner, developer, contractor or anyone authorized to do so on behalf of the owner of the property can apply. If you are not the owner of the property, you will need a Letter of Authorization (pdf)   

How do I apply?

Fill out and submit your Development Permit - Small Residential (pdf) application and the required documents (listed on page 2 of the development application) by visiting Inspections & Licensing on the third floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

When your application has been received, you will get an email directing you to your MyCity account for payment.

Required Forms

What else should I know?

Development approval can take up to six weeks to process. You may submit your building permit application at the same time as your development permit application. 

If your application is denied, you may appeal the decision or its conditions to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board within 14 days.

Building Permit
A building permit allows you to place a new mobile home or relocate an existing mobile on a lot within the City of Red Deer

Who can apply?

An owner, developer, contractor or anyone authorized to do so on behalf of the owner of the property can apply for a permit.  If you are not the owner of the property you can submit a Letter of Authorization (pdf)

How do I apply?

You can apply for your permit by filling out a paper application and submitting your application in person by visiting Inspections & Licensing on the third floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday along with:

  • 2 copies of the floor plan including:
    • room sizes
    • window sizes
    • location of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors
  • 2 copies of the site plan

  • the Alberta Municipal Affairs number
 

Required Forms

What else should I know?

It may take up to three weeks for an application to be processed so it is recommended that you have your contractors apply for their plumbing and electrical permits while you wait. Once a permit has been reviewed and approved by a Safety Codes Officer it will only be released when all applicable sub trade permits are in place. Once your building permit and all subsidiary permits have been inspected and closed, you will receive a Completion Report. The Completion Report allows the dwelling to be occupied and must remain with the property if it is transferred or sold.

What inspections will I need?

The inspections required are specific to each project. A list of required inspections will be printed on your building permit. Any deficiencies identified during the inspection will need to be corrected. Re-inspections or a verification of compliance (written completion notification) may be required. Re-inspection fees or other penalties may apply.
