New building, rebuilding or extension

This is an easy-to-read page.

You normally need a building permit when you wish to build a new house, extend your house or make certain changes to your house.

You may also need a building permit to put up a fence or wall.

Your municipal building committee will decide whether you need a building permit for what you plan to build.

If you are unsure about whether you require a building permit, you should contact the building committee.
Sometimes, you must provide notification even if you do not require a building permit.
