Driveway permits are issued by the Department of Engineering and Public Works.

If you need to establish a new driveway on your property, please contact the Department directly. Costs of driveway permits vary based on the size and location of the driveway (based on labour costs, material, and equipment required). Price also varies if traffic control is required during the curb-cutting process.

Once you contact the Department, a site visit will be scheduled and a price estimate will be provided.

For more information, or to apply for a driveway permit, please contact:
