Soil Removal and Deposit Regulation Bylaw
The Soil Deposit bylaw sets out the regulations for removing and/or depositing soil on land within the City. Homeowners must obtain a permit before removing or depositing any soil from their property. No permit is required to move soil within a property or if less than 50 cubic metres of soil is moved per year. The bylaw also includes specific permit exemptions, permit conditions, security deposit requirements and details required for a permit application. There is no fee for a soil deposit permit. Valid nursery operations, golf courses, road and utility corridor maintenance, and other soil deposit/removal activities that are addressed through another current development process (e.g. development permit, subdivision, or building permit) are exempt from needing a permit.
