Permit Application Process
Check Your Zoning

- Check to see if you require approvals from any external agencies such as a Conservation Authority or Heritage Committee.

By-law 270-2004, as amended, is the City of Brampton’s comprehensive Zoning By-law.
The zoning by-law contains provisions that regulate the use, size, height, and location of buildings and structures on all properties within the City. The provisions of the by-law will specify the permitted uses (e.g. commercial or residential) and the required standards (e.g. building size and location) in each zone.
The goal of the City’s zoning by-law is to create harmonious neighbourhoods and communities by ensuring that adjacent land uses are compatible and by setting regulations that govern built form.
If you are building in an area regulated by a conservation authority, you will need approval from that authority before the City of Brampton can issue the building permit. Please contact the Credit Valley Conservation Authority or the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority for more information.
