The Building Code sets out the stages of construction at which different types of buildings/sewage systems require inspections. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to contact the Building Department for an inspection when the project is at the stages of construction set out in the Building Code. The Deseronto building official is required to carry out the inspection within two working days of being notified. For construction of a sewage system, the inspector has five working days to conduct the inspection. During the inspection, a building inspector will inspect the work to determine if it is carried out in accordance with the Building Code, your permit and the approved plans. You will also be required to:
- show your permit in a window or other place where it can be easily seen
- keep copies of the plans on the site
- tell the town about any changes to the proposed construction, which will also have to be approved by the municipality.
The inspector must always be able to see the work. If it’s different from the work that was approved and, unless you get permission for a revision to your plans, you will be told to correct it. If you don’t, the municipality can take enforcement action, such as issuing orders authorized under the Building Code Act, 1992.
