Municipal consulting in Windsor is the perfect first step when starting a new project. Cities across North America impose different regulations depending on their offerings and the will of the people. The resulting environment is complicated and must be navigated carefully to avoid violations, fines, and injunctions. Payne Municipal Consulting offers expertise to help you get off the ground without trouble.
What regulations apply to my project?
The regulations applicable to your project differ depending on your vision. The construction of an apartment building relates to different laws than industrial development. Buildings must be within a certain height and avoid creating the toxic environments present in cities at the turn of the 20th century
The city regulates certain parts of housing construction. This includes the addition of sunrooms, installation of solar panels, and demolition of structures. If your project exceeds three stories or demolition extends below the foot level of surrounding properties, you must obtain a permit.
These regulations can be complicated. According to the Building Code of 1992 and related extensions, some edifices require the submission of a plan while other similar projects do note. Only specific stand-alone solar panels require approval.
Industrial construction requirements are even stricter. Dealing with proper disposal, access to mechanical and electrical systems, and the addition of industrial processes are heavily regulated with an eye towards safety.
Payne Municipal Consulting offers the expertise of helping our clients navigate through a jungle of regulations. We understand the law intimately and pass this knowledge to our customers.
International laws and regulations differ greatly from those of Windsor. Many countries are more relaxed than Canada or even the United States. Pollution and safety standards are not always the same across borders.

What can I do if I am in violation of a regulation?
