Building Permits and Applications

Here's what happened: The eApply system 'caches' (keeps all the information you enter) in your web browser's temporary memory until the end of the proces​s when your permit is created.

By pressing the 'Back' button, the proper storage of this data becomes broken and you will need to start at the beginning of the eApply permit you were working on.

Revisions to the information you enter can be made on the 'Confirm' screen. Use the small blue underlined links to go back and make changes to the appropriate section, which will allow you to continue moving through the application process without errors.

The search box is tied to the City's property database which uses particular abbreviations to find addresses, i.e. 'ST' for 'Street', 'BLVD' for 'Boulevard', 'RD' for 'Road" and 'S' rather than 'South'.

The simplest way to find the address you are looking for is to enter the number and the first few characters of the street, i.e. '910 4 A'

The search box will dynamically return all the properties that match the criteria you enter, and will narrow the results as you type more characters. Simply select the address you are searching for. Clicking on the full address displayed in blue will finalize your selection.

A permit is issued on the understanding that the information and material provided by or on behalf of the applicant/homeowner in support of its issuance is accurate correct and complete. The City of Lethbridge may revoke or suspend the permit by written notice to the applicant and/or homeowner if any information or material provided by or on behalf of the applicant is false, inaccurate or incomplete, or if the permit has been issued in error, or if the work authorized by the permit is contrary to any bylaw of the City of Lethbridge or any Provincial regulation. 
If this permit is revoked or suspended all work authorized by it must immediately cease and the City of Lethbridge may issue a Stop Work Order on the project. 
The fees are based on the information that you the applicant have provided. Additional fees or revised fees may be required after the assessment of your application. Application fees may or may not be refunded in accordance to the appropriate City of Lethbridge Bylaw. 
Every permit issued by a Safety Codes Officer shall expire and become null and void if the work authorized by the permit is not commenced within ninety (90) days from the date of permit issuance, or if the work authorized by the permit is suspended or abandoned for a period of one hundred and twenty (120) days at any time after the work is commenced. 
The property owner is responsible for contacting Alberta One Call and having all utility locations marked prior to construction. Permission to build over any utility must be approved by that utility company.
Any personal information collected on this application is collected under the Safety Codes Act and the Municipal Government Act and in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The information is required and will be used for issuing permits, safety codes compliance verification and monitoring, utility services, planning & development purposes, and property assessment purposes. Please note that such information may be made public.
