Building Inspection

The Building Inspection Division of Community Development is mandated to administer and enforce the Nova Scotia Provincial Building Code regulations which the County of Colchester has adopted as required by law. This department is responsible for all new construction, alterations to buildings, relocations, demolition, change of occupancy and any unsafe buildings.

The Provincial regulations mandate the Municipality to use and administer the current adopted additions of the National Building Code of Canada for any new construction, additions, alterations or changes of occupancy.
