Development Notices

The Town of Carstairs is dedicated to ensuring that growth within the community conforms to the Land Use Bylaw. Any development projects require prior application and approval.

Development permits are available through the Town Office. Building Permits are required prior to construction. Please remember: a development permit is required for inside projects such as basement renovations and additions. The Town of Carstairs does not issue gas, plumbing and electrical permits. These permits can be obtained through IJD Inspections.

Contact the Town office at 403.337.3341 for permits before you are ready to start your project. To see application forms for deck construction or building permit applications, please visit our Documents and Forms page.
