Renovations & Building Permits

The Town of Cochrane takes its responsibility for safety seriously. We inspect and approve design and construction for building, plumbing, electrical and gas work to ensure they comply with all relevant acts, statutes and bylaws. If you are planning any building or renovations, please talk to us before you get started to make sure you have the right plans and permits in place.\

  • Apply for the permit(s) you need

  • Permit is approved
  • You are contacted
