New 5 Day Residential Building Permit Process

Central Saanich Building Department has introduced a process to allow for a 5-day turnaround for residential single family building permits. This new 5-day option will help make the building permit application process as quick and efficient as possible.

5-Day building permit applicants will be required to complete a detailed checklist ensuring the submission includes all the required information and drawings. Complete and accurate submissions will be processed within 5 business days, or be advised if the application is missing required information. The checklist will assist all applicants, whether you choose to pursue the 5-day permit or not. A complete application will always result in a faster permit and usually an improved construction process!

If other municipal approvals are required, such as a Development Permit or variance, those approvals would be pre-requisites to the 5-day building permit program. The Building Department continues to improve the information available and strives to support the applicant as they navigate the permit process. For further information, please contact the Building Department at 250-544-4217.


This department encompasses many services including Planning, Building Inspections, Bylaw Enforcement, and Community Services. Staff responsibilities include the administration of the Official Community Plan policies and municipal land use bylaws, processing development and subdivision applications, regulation of building construction, issuing Business Licences, and planning for future development and current use of park space on behalf of the community.

Any member of Planning and Building Services would be happy to assist you with any inquiries or concerns you may have regarding your property, development and community services.
