Housing developments in Windsor are eligible for certain benefits while being subject to scrutiny to ensure a vibrant and lively community. Every city wants to promote an attractive community, and our municipality is no exception. Payne Municipal Consulting helps you navigate the complex legal environment created when balancing construction with the needs of the people and organizations.
When do I need to obtain a construction permit in Windsor?
Permits are required for specific buildings but are not for others. The city regulates the development of sunrooms, certain roofing projects, adding extensions to a home or property, and adding zest to your home with a deck. Safety and construction standards ensure the longevity and beauty of your dream.
Regulation is complex. Some solar panels require approval while others do not. Payne Municipal Consulting helps you navigate through this environment with ease. Our consultants understand the pressing need to obtain approval fast and avoid violations.
Are there incentives available for property development in Windsor?
Windsor is booming. Companies such as Kauth set up their North American headquarters in the city and plan to open an automobile plant by 2020. The WeTech alliance aims to create a new Silicon Valley in Ontario.
The city strives to maintain a beautiful environment and enough housing to promote their initiatives. Without a large and talented workforce, these initiatives will fail. To ensure that the population remains, they created the Brownfield Redevelopment Strategy.
Housing developers receive incentives to clean and construct on specific properties. There are currently over one hundred Brownfield sites in Windsor. These sites qualify for extensive tax benefits and incentives.
Our government does not just want to keep the city beautiful. Many metropolises saw rent prices skyrocket when the economy and population boomed. To combat this potential problem, Windsor continues to tap into the $40-billion National Housing Strategy and other grants and low-interest loans.
Partnerships in the creation of affordable housing are potentially profitable for developers. Government grants and incentives make the production of such housing beneficial.
Payne Municipal Consulting helps you discover any grants and benefits to help you with your vision. You may qualify for incentives as a Brownfield property or may find that creating affordable housing suites your needs. We can explore any benefits you are eligible for as well.
Do I need approval for my project?
Many projects require approval. A new 145-unit residential building in East Windsor just received acceptance from the city.
Certain incentives require approval from different committees. The Development and Heritage Standing Committee must accept proposals involving affordable housing such as those for the large apartment complex. This same complex also presented building permits to the city.
Regulations are complex. Housing developments in Windsor may also qualify for numerous benefits. Payne Municipal Consulting provides expertise in all areas of regulation and construction. We aim to help our clients get off on the right foot. Even if you violate a rule, we can help. Contact us today to find out what you need to break ground on your property.
