The Municipality of Trent Lakes Building and Planning department reviews drawings, enforces building codes and by-laws, and provides assistance to builders, designers and home owners. Click below for specific information.
Please note: As of April 1, 2016, the Municipality of Trent Lakes will be amending the application process for building permits, Minor Variances and Zoning By-law Amendments by requesting a survey for any construction (not including a sewage system) within the 30 m water yard setback. This survey is to be prepared by an Ontario Land Surveyor. If the application is to rebuild on the same footprint, the Chief Building Official may allow a Surveyor’s Real Property Report in lieu of a survey. If the property is located on any body of water governed by the Trent Severn Waterway, a flood contour line is to be added.
An official plan describes council’s policies on how land in our community should be used. It is prepared with input from you and others in your community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of our community.
Comprehensive Zoning By-Law
A zoning by-law controls the use of land in your community. It states exactly:
– how each parcel may be used
– where buildings and other structures can be located
– the types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used
– the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks.
