Kamloops, BC – January 25, 2023 – The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) Building Department is pleased to now offer a user-friendly online method for Building Inspection requests and Building Information requests, to effectively meet demand.
Stakeholders and members of the public can now fill out either of these forms online on the TNRD website. The digital format allows both request forms to easily be filled out and submitted.
The new online form for Building Inspection requests complements the call system that remains available to use for stakeholders and members of the public. An inspection is required for all issued Building Permits prior to occupancy.
Building Information requests are intended to provide building permit history of a property, and these requests are solely based on existing files and records. The digital format of the new request form is an improvement from the previous fillable online form, which will be less cumbersome for customers.
In 2022, the TNRD received more than 2,700 Building Inspection requests and more than 600 Building Information requests.
“We’re happy to now have this online system available for these request forms in our building department, which are heavily used,” said Tony Bolton, TNRD Chief Building Inspector. “This new system should make the process more convenient for many members of the public.”
To access the new online request forms, stakeholders and members of the public can visit: tnrd.ca/planning-development.
