Planning on building a deck this year? Get help planning your project from the City of Kingston's building department at an upcoming workshop.
"The workshop will go over how to apply for a permit, design considerations and what building inspectors are looking for to ensure the safety of your structure," says Lisa Capener-Hunt, manager, building services
The workshop is at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 at the Home Depot at 606 Gardiners Rd. Staff will be able to answer questions on the permit application process and requirements for deck construction.
You need a building permit for decks that are going to be two feet above ground or higher. You will soon be able to apply for building permits using the City's online DASH – development and services hub – portal at www.CityofKingston.ca/buildingpermits. The workshop will offer tips on how to use DASH to apply, what design considerations you should take into account, the applicable zoning and fees for building a deck in Kingston.
