The City has created a subset of permits to facilitate projects of a minor nature that require a Development Permit. They include:
Minor Sign Permit
An application for signage must be made with the City when a business erects a new sign. A new sign will be considered minor if the replacement is “like for like” (replacing one sign with one that is similar in character) or the total value of the sign is less than $5000.

Minor Works Permit
Development Permits are required for the Downtown Permit Area and the Cow Bay Development Permit Areas for all exterior construction works. Renovations are considered minor works, and eligible for a Minor Works Permit if the value of work is less than $5,000. For instance, you would only require a Minor Works permit if you are replacing “like for like” exterior features, replacing a canopy with a guideline-appropriate canopy that is similar, or damaged windows or doors.
