The Ontario Building Code (O’Reg 350/06) states that the sewage system performance level is reduced when any change of use (i.e. residential to commercial or vice versa) occurs and where renovations that:

  1. increases the number of bedrooms in the dwelling unit;
  2. exceeds 15% of the finish area of the dwelling unit; and
  3. adds new plumbing fixtures to the dwelling unit.

 
Therefore any proposed renovations will require the homeowner or a registered agent of the homeowner to fill out a Part 8 Special Request Form along with a detailed sketch of the property and submit the completed form to the Township of Wainfleet. The Part 8 Special Request Form can be found below.

PLANNING APPLICATIONS

Planning applications including but not limited to land severances, minor variances, official plan amendments and zoning bylaw amendments may have an impact on the sewage system and therefore may require a Special Request Part 8 form be filled out along with a detailed sketch and submitted to the Township of Wainfleet. The Special Request Part 8 form can be found below.

            PART 8 SPECIAL REQUEST FORM

It is highly recommended to schedule a time to speak with the Chief Building Official and the Manager of Planning to determine if a Part 8 Special Request Form is required to avoid delays and unexpected costs.
