Display of Permits

The Municipality often receives calls or emails asking if a resident has a permit to carry out work. We remind you that permits must be clearly displayed in a visible place during the entire period of the work.

Pursuant to Section 12 of By-law 2013-059 on Permits and Certificates, applicants for a permit or authority must “display any permit or certificate of authorization in such a way that it is visible, throughout the duration of the work or the use authorized by the permit or certificate “.

So, avoid your neighbors calling us to complain about work done without a permit.
If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact the Head of Urban Planning.

Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program (SPAIP)

What is the Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program?

A Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program is an urban planning by-law aimed primarily at ensuring the harmonious integration of buildings and amenities in their environment. Certain types of work and certain sectors of the municipality are subject to a process of evaluation and approval of a Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program. This procedure allows for the evaluation of projects according to qualitative criteria and not only from strict standards. The evaluation criteria are adapted to the environment.

The sectors subject to the Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program are the lands touching the mountain tops identified in the zoning plan.

Steps of the Request

1. Filing of the application (form and supporting documents of the application) to the Head of the Urban Planning Department.
2. Technical analysis of the file by the Head of the Urban Planning Department.
3. Presentation of the file to the Urban Planning Advisory Committee (PAC), which meets once a month according to a pre-established schedule. At the end of the working session, the PAC recommends acceptance or rejection of the project.
4. Transmission of the recommendation to the municipal council, which will take cognizance of the file and may accept or reject the recommendation issued by the PAC.
5. Adoption of the project by resolution at the public meeting of the subsequent council.
6. Issuance of the permit or certificate of authorization upon obtaining the resolution. Some projects may be approved subject to minor modifications and the applicant must sign his undertaking to respect the conditions stated.
7. In the case of a project refusal, new plans may be provided to further meet the required criteria. In the latter case, the analysis process will be repeated from the beginning and the file will follow the same procedure.

A building permit for a main building is valid for a period of 24 months. A renovation permit is valid for a period of 12 months. These permits can then be renewed for a period of 6 months. The permit becomes null and void if the work is not started within 6 months of issue.
