Decks

A building permit is required for a deck higher than 0.6 metres (2 feet) above
average ground level or any deck which will eventually support an enclosed
structure with a roof such as a sun room, family room, et cetera.
 
Regardless of whether or not the deck is attached to the house or any other
structure on the property, a building permit is required, as noted above.

For further information, please view the Deck brochure or consult with Planning and Building Department staff.
