Building Inspection Services

Property owners within the District of Barriere boundaries  obtain Building Permits and request Building Inspections directly with the District office at the Ridge in Barriere, not at the TNRD office in Kamloops. If you live outside the District boundaries you will continue to work with the TNRD office.

Scott Abel, Building Inspector, will be available to meet with you, to discuss and assist you with your permit requirements, every Wednesday in the office or, alternatively as arranged by appointment at other agreed upon times.

Scott Abel can be reached at (250) 778-808-6089.  Building Permit Application forms are available at the District Office or by selecting and clicking the required, printable, permit application below.  Further information can also be obtained by contacting the District Office at (250) 672-9751.
