Checklist for Structural Setback
If you have or plan to build a structure within 4.5 metres of the right-of-way, you will need a permit for setback or encroachment. Please note, however, that the Ministry of Transportation discourages new structures built within these margins.
Provide the following information on the application form:
Provide Drawings. Plans shall be metric, drawn to scale, and show:
Provide a certificate of title and a letter of authorization from the registered owner(s) where the applicant is not the owner.
The applicant is responsible to assure that design and construction of the structure conform to all applicable legislation, bylaws and codes, and that all other necessary permits are applied for.
In addition, you may be required to have the property lines and extremities of the proposed structure's footings clearly flagged on site prior to Ministry inspection.
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act was proclaimed on October 4, 1993. All personal and business information collected by the Ministry is subject to the provisions of the Act.
