Building Construction & Maintenance Permit

You need to obtain a temporary street use permit if you must close or restrict any portion of a public right-of-way (street, alley or sidewalk) prior to the construction, alterations/repair or demolition of a building or structure.

Restrictions

  • You must provide adequate insurance (as indicated in the Traffic Division Procedure Manual)
  • Depending on the project and where it is located, the City may specify a time of day and/or week that the closure or restriction can occur.
  • If the closure or restriction will affect businesses located on the street, alley, or sidewalk, you must contact and negotiate with those businesses to minimize the disturbance to their business.
  • If the closure or restriction will impact pedestrian movement, you must provide Public Works with information how you will control and protect pedestrians that may pass through the street closure.  If a covered walk-way is required, it must meet the guidelines indicated in the Traffic Division Procedure Manual.

To apply

To apply for a temporary street use permit to restrict or close a public right-of-way for the construction, repair or demolition of a building or structure, you must:

  1. Contact Service Regina at 306-777-7000 to request a street use permit:

    • Request for a temporary street use permit for a major roadway (collector, arterial or expressway) must be received at least seven days prior to closure.
    • Note: If you are requesting to close a provincial highway or highway connector, you must also contact the Minister of Highways to get approval.  This process can take two to six weeks.
  2. Contact any businesses located along the public right-of-way to negotiate and minimize any impact to their businesses during the project.
  3. Submit your completed temporary street use permit and fees to Public Works (Traffic Engineering)
  4. Once Public Works has received your permit and approved it, the City will issue your temporary street use permit.
