A Demolition Permit is required prior to demolishing or removing any building with a floor area greater than 120 ft2 (107.64 ft2 in the R.M. of Rosser) from any property located within the South Interlake Planning District (SIPD). The elimination of a building from a property affects that property's assessment and taxes. The SIPD is responsible for notifying Manitoba Assessment of all building demolitions and removals associated with a Demolition Permit issued by the SIPD.

When demolishing or removing a building, it shall be the responsibility of the applicant to ensure the following:

  1. Site safety is maintained as per Part 8 of the National Building Code:
    Safety Measures at Construction and Demolition Sites (Click Here for PDF);
  2. All applicable Utilities are disconnected and secured;
  3. The area is fenced and secured during demolition and clean-up (if applicable);
  4. After demolition/removal, the site must be cleaned up, i.e.:
    - removal of old foundation;
    - ground filled and leveled;
    - site made safe to the satisfaction of the SIPD.
NOTE: In addition to a Demolition Permit, applicants may also be required to obtain other Provincial approvals.
