Types of Permits/Approvals
Many projects can be permitted without plans. These "No-Plan" projects include work such as:
- Installing a new electrical circuit
- Replacement of a heating system
- Adding or replacing a water heater
Most of these types of projects can be permitted online by using our SimplE-Permits service. For more information see Information Bulletin 103 - Fee Schedule and Worksheet for Mechanical,Plumbing/Gas,Electrical (PDF)
Other "No-Plan" projects may be a little more complicated and won’t qualify for a SimplE-Permit. However, permits for those projects are still easy to obtain. Simply make an appointment with Development Services by phoning (619) 446-5300.
