To work on the City’s right-of-way, you need a Road Occupancy & Access (ROA) Permit. ROA Permits are in place to control activities such as temporary/short term lane closures or access to perform work. The scope of the work on the right-of-way includes activities such as small-scale excavation of the boulevard to full sanitary sewer replacement. In addition, private contractors must also get an ROA Permit in order to perform work on private property such as pool installation or landscaping, etc. Click here for more information on this permit.
If you need to gain access to the right-of-way on a Regional Road, contact the Region of Peel. Click here to visit the Region of Peel’s Road Permits web page.
If you will be changing the grade (meaning the slope or level) of your property, it is important to obtain a Fill Permit. City staff will inspect your plans and property to ensure that the changes will not affect surface drainage on your neighbours’ properties and that swales and catch basins are not altered.
Fill Permits take approximately up to two weeks or less to be processed. For more information about Fill Permits, contact the Works & Transportation Department at 905-874-2500 (TTY for hearing impaired 905-874-2130).
