Terms and Conditions

I agree that I have reviewed and understand the Township’s Entrance By-Law 032/2020 and further that I will comply with all requirements set out in that By-Law.

I understand further requirements may be imposed upon initial inspection to be included as conditions to the approved permit. This may include the addition of culverts, drainage, or other conditions imposed based on development approvals.

I understand that a sketch or drawing must be included with this application showing the location and size of the property.

I understand that entrance permits expire one (1) year following the date of issue. Entrance permits not completed within the one (1) year forfeit the full application fee. A new application must be made with an additional application fee in accordance with the Township’s User Fees and Charges By-Law.

I understand that the Township must be notified at least two (2) business days prior to the commencement of any construction.

I understand that it is the responsibility of the owner/applicant to ensure that the construction of the entrance is in accordance with the requirements of all applicable regulatory agencies having jurisdiction. Contact the Clerks department for more information if required.

I understand that a minimum of two (2) inspections are required: the initial inspection is to take place prior to the issuance of the permit; a final inspection must be scheduled once construction is complete in order for any deposit to be returned. It is the responsibility of the owner/applicant to schedule the final inspection with the Township. Please contact the Clerks Department to schedule an inspection.

I understand that in order to ensure installation standards are met and professional construction techniques are employed and that no damage has occurred to the Township road, an Entrance Permit Deposit is required. This deposit is refundable after final inspection, if the construction and restoration are complete and no deficiencies exist and where no damage to the Township road has been caused. Should the Township be required to make repairs, complete the construction or remove the entrance at any time as deemed necessary by the Director of Public Works, Parks and Facilities or designate, associated costs shall be deducted from the below noted deposit. Further costs, if incurred by the Township with respect to the road damage, shall be invoiced to the property owner and may be added to the tax roll and collected in the same manner as taxes on the property.

I understand that an entrance permit does not provide permissions with respect to changes in grade or the importation of fill and a Site Alteration Permit application may be required for development of the driveway.

I have read, understood, and will comply to the attached General Terms & Conditions which form part of this permit application.

It is understood that all works will be constructed, altered, maintained, or operated at the expense of the undersigned.

It is understood that work must not begin before the first inspection has been completed and the Township has issued a permit. The issuance of a permit by the Corporation of the Township of Puslinch (“Township”) does not relieve the owner/applicant of the application of the responsibility of complying with relevant municipal by-laws. In consideration of any permit issued in respect to this application, we, the applicants for ourselves, our heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns, hereby agree to observe, keep and perform and be subject to the regulations and conditions of the said permit and to indemnify and save harmless the Township from and against all loss, cost, changes, damages, whatsoever to which may be put or which the Township may suffer or sustain or for which the Township may be liable by reason of anything done or omitted to be done in construction, maintenance, alteration or operation of the works authorized.
