Online Building Permit Application Guide

The City of Maple Ridge has launched a new online permit application guide, intended to help make it easier for people to prepare their building permit applications!

This online guide will provide you with specific property information, such as your zone and servicing connection, as well as the forms and plans that are required in order to submit an application for your building project.

If you are thinking of putting in a secondary suite this summer, this guide will not only let you know all the documents that are required to submit an application, but flag potential site features that require additional information, such as being in a floodplain area or being on septic, as well as identify whether your property is in a zone that permits secondary suites.

The City currently has tailored guides for five project types.

  1. Single Detached Dwelling
  2. Detached Garden Suite
  3. Secondary Suite
  4. Decks
  5. Pools
You are able to print or download the guide onto your desktop so you can review it at anytime. If you are looking into doing multiple projects, you also have the option to create an account where your guide will be saved online and act as a checklist for your project.

Once you are ready to submit an application, bring all your completed forms, documents and plans to City Hall. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, excluding statutory holidays.

If you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to contact us!
