There may be restrictions that affect how you use or develop your property. We cannot issue a planning permit if your proposed use or development allows the covenant to be breached.
You must get a recent copy of the certificate of title from the Land Titles Office to determine if a covenant affects your property.
You need a planning permit to change or remove a covenant.
Before applying for a planning permit, please ensure you've provided all the information our restrictive covenant information sheet.
