Encroachment Permit (Public Works)

If you are completing any work on your property (aside from building construction) such as installing a driveway, you will need to apply for an Encroachment Permit. You are not permitted to commence any work in the Municipal Right of Way until a permit has been issued. 

Fee(s): $1150.00 or $5150.00 (Application Fee of $150.00 plus an Encroachment Deposit of $1000.00 or $5000.00 if road crossing is involved). Please note that municipal drains and sewers may require a $5000 deposit if an open cut across the road is required. This higher desposit may be applied upon review of the Municipality prior to approval of application.

The Encroachment Deposit may be returned to the applicant after the completion of all work is inspected by the Municipality and Municipal Right of Way is undamaged or returned to a pre-construction state.

Payment: Online payment is now available via credit card, a convenience fee of 3% will be applied to the total. You may also choose to pay at our facility or mail your payment into the Municipality. If this payment option is chosen, it can only be made by debit, cheque, bank draft or money order made payable to "Municipality of Leamington." Reminder, we are a cashless facility. 

If you have chosen not to process payment online, you can either mail your payment to 111 Erie Street North, Leamington, ON N8H 2Z9 or drop it off in an envelope at the dropbox located at the entrace to the Leamington Municipal Building off of Queens Avenue.
