Development Permits

About Development

Development means excavating, stockpiling, the construction of a building, and addition to, or replacement or repair of a building, or a change in the intensity of use or a building in an area regulated by land-use by-law. The Town of High Level has a Land-Use By-Law which requires a Development Permit regulating and “development” within the town limits, and all applications for this permit must be accompanied by either a site plan or a statement of use, or both.


The cost of a Development Permit can range from $65 to $300, depending on the location of the property.
