No developer shall undertake or cause or permit to be undertaken, any development in the Town of Bridgewater unless a Development Permit has been obtained in relation to such development from the Development Officer appointed by Council.
The Development Permit is required for new construction, additions, renovations and changes of use (e.g. office to a store) to ensure compliance with the Town's Land Use By-Law. Applications must be signed by the owner of the lot, or the agent of the owner of the lot (with the written authorization of the owner), and be accompanied by a plot plan showing where structures will be located. Further information may be necessary to determine whether or not the proposed development conforms with the requirements of the Land Use By-law. There is no charge for this permit.
