Before any building, renovation or new construction project may be started within the boundaries of the Municipality of Otter Lake, it must conform to Municipal, MRC and Environmental regulations.

A building permit is required for all construction, renovation and demolition on your property, both indoors and out.

Apply for the building permit at least 30 days prior to the start date of your project. 

No construction (this means any type of work including the cutting of trees or shrubs or putting sand on the beach) of any kind is to take place within 50 feet from the high water mark of a lake or watercourse. This 50 foot strip must remain in its original state. Failure to comply with this law will result in punitive action. This applies to all residents of Otter Lake. 

Further clarification and information on these bylaws can be obtained by e-mail, phone, fax or in person during business hours.
