DEMOLITION PERMITS

(FOR RECONSTRUCTION OF BUILDING/STRUCTURE) 

Building Bylaw Requirements and

Approval Process

  1. Write to the city of your intention to demolish the structure.  Include: Name of Owner, Address, Site Address, Legal Description, and the Work Description.

  2. Pay all of the taxes on the building, or portion thereof. 

  3. Pay the city a $50.00 Administrative Fee, and a $500.00 Damage Deposit for a 6 month Demolition permit. 

  4. Complete the demolition within 6 months of  issue and receive a refund of your damage deposit less the necessary charges.

  5. Finally, clean up the property so that it is safe and level.

  6. You may reuse the water and sewer service connections if the water service is 20+ mm (3/4 in.) in size, free of lead, and has been inspected by the City of Swift Current at no charge.  You must notify the city if service is to be stopped; the city will disconnect this as the owner’s expense.  Half services may be installed at the owner’s expense, and all materials must be provided by the plumber and not the city. 

  7. The city will terminate the water and electrical meters—2 days notice is required (306-778-2731).  Contact SaskEnergy (306-778-4151) regarding charges for terminating gas lines at the main.
