Building Permit - Temporary Building

If you have the need for a temporary building then you will need a building permit.

A temporary building project types include, but are not limited to;

  • temporary vehicle storage, while building a new garage
  • temporary storage of goods
  • temporary buildings for a special event

Temporary buildings by their very nature are not meant to be on your property for very long.

Since these buildings are used for a specific purpose for a defined period of time, they may not need to meet all of the Building Code requirements of a permanent building.
