null Building and Enforcement Services temporarily halts inspections of occupied dwellings
March 17, 2020 -
As of Tuesday, March 17, City of Kingston Building Officials and Enforcement Officers will not be conducting inspections within an occupied dwelling for Building Permits or Property Standards. This temporary halt to inspections will continue through Friday, April 3 and will be continually reassessed for a reduction or extension in timing. Required City inspections by the City will be rescheduled at a later date.
“Our Inspectors and Officers play a crucial role in keeping residents safe by ensuring building code and bylaw compliance. With recent developments, we’re taking this one step further to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” says Lisa Capener-Hunt, Chief Building Official. “As this situation continues to evolve, we’re always considering what is best for the health and safety of both our community and the dedicated team working here at the City of Kingston.”
The City will continue to maintain safety by responding to all emergency or unsafe conditions, and offer all other types of inspections during regular inspection hours, until further notice.
Building permit plan reviews will also continue during this time and permit applications can be submitted online through DASH. Other inquiries can be made by calling 613 546-4291 ext. 3280 or by emailing email@example.com for Building Services; or by calling ext. 3135 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for Enforcement Services.
At this point, Kingston remains a low-risk community, with no confirmed cases of COVID-19. Please continue to monitor the City of Kingston’s COVID-19 webpage for further updates.
