Selective Interior Demolition Permission may be requested online with an application for a change to an existing commercial building, where the work involves interior alterations only and no development permit is required.
It is not available for an application that involves a change of use for business activities, exterior alteration and additions.
Permission can be requested to proceed with selective interior demolition work while the permit is being processed for Building and Trades permit issuance. Permission is limited to the removal of fixtures and finishes, selective deconstruction of partitions, asbestos and hazmat remediation in relation to the project, and plumbing groundwork or underfloor work.
Permission for Selective Interior Demolition may be granted only when sufficient information is submitted for the application to be deemed complete in accordance with the Minimum Submission Guidelines on the first intake screening:
- Completed form and scope of project
- Correct addressing, trades and construction value
- Fees paid
- Plans and specifications appropriate to the project
- Completed professional schedules where applicable
If the application is deemed incomplete, the request for Selective Interior Demolition Permission will be refused and no work may start until the building permit is issued.
A Selective Interior Demolition Permission is not a full building permit and does not permit new construction activities other than as outlined in the permission conditions.
