One of 14 local governments involved in provincial pilot

Maple Ridge is among 14 local governments involved in a provincial government pilot to speed up building permits.

In an effort to homes built faster and address challenges in B.C.’s housing market, a new digital Building Permit Hub will streamline and standardize local permitting processes. Maple Ridge city hall has been criticized for poor public service to applicants at the building department.

“The permitting process can be slow and complicated, delaying the construction of homes we urgently need,” said Premier David Eby. “Together, we’ve made progress cutting provincial and municipal permitting times, but we have to keep going.
