Some development, permit, licensing, and construction and inspection services are still operating at adjusted levels.

What does processing time mean?

- Processing time estimates shown below apply to Building Permit applications and inspections only.  Call 311 (780-442-5311 outside Edmonton) for Development Permit application status updates.

- Building Permit applications are queued for assignment to a plans examiner after the approved Development Permit conditions are completed to the satisfaction of the development officer. 

- Building Permit applicants (except Home Improvement Permit applicants) are notified by email when the application is queued, and again when assigned for review.  

- A plans exam report indicating “More Information Required” will typically be emailed to a permit applicant within 10 business days of assignment where application review indicates information is lacking or unclear. Where the application is satisfactory, the permit issuance notification will be emailed.

- Processing time is the time during which the City is handling the permit application, which does not include time waiting for applicants to fulfil any “More Information Required” request.

- This dashboard is refreshed daily at 10am and 6pm. Processing estimate update times are indicated within the chart.
