Building Inspection

Building Inspection

Building inspection will continue to monitor development and construction in the community, including tree removal and soil removal. Policies and procedures to help ensure equity and efficiency in all situations will continue to be fine-tuned.

The Building Inspector performs the additional role as our Bylaw Enforcement Officer and has the assistance of a contract Bylaw Officer during the summer period. The intent of the position is to provide fairness and harmony to local citizens and visitors by ensuring local legislation is adhered to when necessary. Bylaw enforcement generally uses mediation prior to issuance of a ticket or notice filed on title. Peachland is providing leadership towards organizing Municipalities in the Okanagan in partnership to put into place a new Bylaw Dispute Adjudication system under the Community Charter.
