Property Information and Records

  • CITYVIEWS MAP

    The CityViews Map can be used to search for a variety of property information, including site development reports, zoning information, permit history, underground services, easements & right-of-ways, land use classifications and transportation.
    • Access the CityViews Map by clicking the link below. After selecting a specific property, by either using the search bar, or right-clicking a property and selecting "find data on map", a Site Report for that property can be obtained from a link on the left column. This Site Development Report will outline the zoning information for the site, and any buildings on the property, as well as a listing of permits issued for the property.

  • BUILDING DIVISION DOCUMENT REQUEST

    Property owners wishing to obtain Building Division records, including archived drawings, copies of permits, inspection reports, or professional reports may do so through a Document Request.
    • A document request may only be made by either the registered property owner, or an authorized agent of the owner, with a complete Letter of Authorization.
       
      If the request is for a strata property, the Letter of Authorization must also be signed by the president of the strata council.
       
      If the owner is a Corporation or Non-Profit, the Letter of Authorization must be accompanied by a letter from the owners solicitor or a copy of the Company or Society Summary, confirming the signatory has signing authority. 
       
      The City cannot guarantee that the requested information will be on file, or that documents that are on file are complete. 
       
      Please note there is a non-refundable search fee, in addition to the service fees and per page fees. 
    • Fill out the Document Request Form and email it to buildingdept@newwestcity.ca. Once we have received the form, we will search for the records and then contact you with a quote and process for obtaining the documents.

  • FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

    When the requestor is not the property owner and not acting with the owners authorization, or is requesting information beyond that outlined in the Document Request Form, the requestor must complete a Freedom of Information Request for Records.
  • COMFORT LETTERS
