Demolition Permits are required whenever a building over 120 square feet* is removed off a property, intact, in part, or destroyed on-site.

*In the Village of Dunnottar, a demolition permit is required for any structure greater than 100 square feet and/or greater than 15 ft. in height.

** In the R.M. of East St. Paul, a demolition permit is required for any structure greater than 107 square feet.

The purpose of the Demolition Permit is three part:

  1. Removal of the building from the Tax Assessment on the property;
  2. Provides the municipality with the location of the demolition. This is to ensure that any services provided by the Municipality which are connected to the building are cut off properly. Property owners should contact ALL utilities to ensure proper disconnection from services. These include, but may not be limited to:
    • Manitoba Hydro/Natural Gas
    • Water and Sewage
    • Cable and Telephone Service
  3. Provides notification of the activity to take place on the property and the RRPD will inspect the site during and after demolition to ensure the site is in, and left in, a safe condition according to the Building By-Laws our office regulates.
