The City regulates the use of City streets, sidewalks and parking lots through permits.

Application for Works on City Lands & Infrastructure

If you are doing any construction work that impacts City lands or infrastructure such as a street, sidewalk, boulevard or parking lot, you will need to submit an application for a Works on City Lands and Infrastructure Permit. This also applies for Water System Shutdown and Fire Hydrant use requests.

  • You will be required to submit a copy of your business insurance that names the City of Campbell River as additional insured and has a minimum liability coverage of $3,000,000. The expiry date should be clearly indicated.
  • If you need to do any work within the curb lines, you will need a Road Closure Permit.  This applies even if traffic can still flow through the work zone.
  • Depending on the extent of the closure, you may be required to undertake public notification.
  • You will be required to provide a Traffic and/or Pedestrian Management Plan.
  • You are required to provide a copy of your Worksafe Clearance Letter.
  • You may be asked to distribute a “Good Neighbour Letter”  to residents and businesses in the area to notify them of the work.  The letter must include the date and time of the work, a general description of the work, and a phone number and contact names for any questions.

If you have any questions about the application process for this permit, please email or  call the Development Services Department at 250-286-5725.
