The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is pleased to launch Wood Buffalo Civic Insight, a mobile-friendly tool that allows residents to view and monitor permitting and new construction activities in their neighbourhood.
Residents can view detailed permitting, demolition and construction progress, including dates and the status of permits (i.e. applied, reviewed, issued, inspected or finalized) by inputting a street name or address, or by clicking on an address. The tool also provides workflow checks each month in addition to daily, weekly and monthly permit volumes.
Residents can sign up for alerts, which offer up-to-date information about what’s happening with their property or properties in their neighbourhood. A comprehensive tour of the tool is also available.
“It’s essential that the required permits are obtained for any work being completed,” said Damon McGillivray, Safety Codes Manager. “Safety Codes permits are a critical component of the construction process that ensures homes in our community are built safely. This resource will not only allows residents to track the rebuild process in their neighbourhood, but will also allow them to hold their neighbours accountable when it comes to the required permitting process.”
Wood Buffalo Civic Insight has been developed to support current development and construction activities. Some information on permit approvals prior to 2012 may be incomplete and you will need to contact Planning and Development to review the Property file.
Residents can direct their inquiries or report any permit discrepancies to the Planning and Development department by emailing email@example.com or calling (780) 799-8695.
