The City of Winnipeg is streamlining the way it issues building permits to expedite the process and eliminate a backlog caused by a boom in the city’s construction sector.

The 2012 Building Permit and Inspections Services Improvement Strategy and Action Plan is a collaboration with the building design and construction industry. The proposed improvements will also ensure a high level of building code and By-Law compliance is maintained ensuring the safety of customers, builders and owners.

The city will work with industry to improve the quality of permit application and building plan submission, employ an audit-based approach to residential permit application plan submissions and inspections, and increase accountability for code compliance.

The plan will go before the Standing Policy Committee on Property and Development on March 6.
