Saanich’s Engineering department gets a new home 

Saanich, BC – Saanich’s engineering services that have historically been available at Municipal Hall will soon be available from our new location at 3500 Blanshard Street starting on November 9, 2020. 

“Our space at Municipal Hall has served us well, but with increasing demand we knew we needed to find a space that would allow us to continue to provide a high level of service to the public,” said Harley Machielse, Director of Engineering. “Those who use our engineering services will now be able to engage with our team at our new location and we’re excited to work with the public from our new space.”

Important service changes

Permits and land development document requests, including payment services, that were previously provided at Municipal Hall will now be available at 3500 Blanshard Street.

Types of permits and requests include:

  • Construction and road allowance permits
  • Servicing requirements for developments
  • Transportation related inquiries
  • Underground servicing

In order to fulfill requests quickly, Saanich staff recommend that requests be submitted by email, but in-person services are still available. Payments can be made upon pick up of permits at the new location.  

More information is available on the Engineering page.
