Development and Building

Planning & Development Process

In Saskatchewan, the primary responsibility for managing community planning, development issues, land use and municipal services rests with local municipalities. Municipalities are authorized to carry out local and regional planning, establish zoning bylaws, and require development permits, servicing agreements, or development levies to manage land use, development, infrastructure, and community growth issues.

The following guide was prepared by the Community Planning branch of the Government of Saskatchewan in 2016. It is an overview of the municipal planning, development permit and subdivision approval processes in Saskatchewan.

Further to the Development Permit process of the RM of Dufferin No. 190, the municipality also has a Building Bylaw.  This bylaw provides a process to ensure building construction within the RM meets national and provincial minimum requirements.  All development within the RM is required to follow the Development Permit Application process and then the Building Permit Application process.

Bylaw 11-2023 – Building Bylaw for the RM of Dufferin No. 190

The RM of Dufferin No. 190 utilizes the services of BuildTech Consulting & Inspections Inc. to provide the Building Permit Application form and plan reviews. They are responsible for ensuring building construction meets legislated requirements and follow up their plan review with onsite inspections.


No development or construction may occur on any proposed development or building until a valid Development Permit and Building Permit (if applicable) has been issued.

Please Note: The standard time to process Development Permit applications is around 2 to 4 weeks.
