CONSTRUCTION SEASON -
DEVELOPMENT PERMIT REMINDER
Spring is in the air – and also the sound of hammers!
If you are thinking about building a new shed, adding a solarium to your house or starting work on your new property, remember to check out the Haines Junction Zoning Bylaw (http://www.hainesjunctionyukon.com/index.php/document-list/village-documents/89-village-of-haines-junction-zoning-bylaw-1996) or contact the Village Office to determine if you require a Development Permit to proceed.
You can pick up a Development Permit Application Form at the Village Office or download one at: http://www.hainesjunctionyukon.com/index.php/document-list/village-documents/118-development-permit-application-form
Please note that Development Permit Applications are reviewed to ensure that they are complete and in full compliance with the existing Zoning Bylaw. While in the past securing a Development Permit might have taken as little as an hour, the processing time has increased due to volume of ongoing projects and staffing capacity. Depending on the completeness of an application and the complexity of a Development Permit Application, the processing time may be anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks. Where required by the Zoning Bylaw, permits must be secured prior to the commencement of work. Please time your projects and application submission accordingly.
