Development & Construction Permits 2017-06-07T17:56:17+00:00


The Development Department is available to discuss your development and building plans in Fox Creek. Before beginning development on any project there are several steps you will need to take to make sure your new building or development is in compliance with local bylaws and regulations.

Development Permit

A Development Permit is required for any new construction or changes to any existing buildings or land. Development permit applications can be made at the Town Administration Office by filling out the form below:

Compliance Certificate

As of October 18, 2016 onward, as part of Compliance Certificate application, the Town of Fox Creek will only accept RPR that is:

  1. No older than six (6) months from the time of request, or
  2. No older than year 2005 accompanied by a Statutory Declaration.

One cost-effective way to comply with the new RPR requirement is to get an updated RPR instead of complete a new RPR. Please note that ONLY the original Land Surveyor can update the report.
