Building Permits

Surrey issues building permits to ensure that construction complies with the BC Building Code as well as the City's own policies and regulations. Information gathered from building permit applications provide insights into demographic changes and development activity. It is also used to calibrate the City's population estimates. Information is available on current building permit activity as well as building permit activity for previous years.

Detailed building permit summaries are prepared each month. They provide monthly and current year cumulative information on the number of permits issued, the number of dwellings being built, and the value of the permits. The summaries also provide comparable information from the previous year.
