Notes

  1. The application fee must be paid at the time of filing an application. A permit will not be issued unless the application fee has been submitted.
  2. CVC reserves the right to modify or adjust fees should the review require a substantially greater or lower level of review and/or assessment.
  3. Fees related to review of repeat submissions will be determined by CVC depending on the number, completeness and quality of the repeat submissions.
  4. All permits are issued for two years. Permit extensions and/or renewals will not be granted. However, applicants may re-apply for re-issuance of a new permit for the original approved works in accordance with the most recent technical requirements.
  5. For Permits associated with “Unauthorized Works” or a “Violation”, the fee will be double the applicable application fee.
  6. For large fill placements, the CVC Procedural Guideline for receiving and processing applications to place fill in excess of 500 cubic metres should be referenced.
