Development & Safety Codes Inspections

To all our Builders:
Please note that the time of year when we cannot complete Performance and Landscaping Inspections is fast approaching. As of November 4, 2019, until April 1, 2020, the City of Chestermere will not be accepting requests for Performance or Landscaping inspections due to variable weather conditions and uncertain snow/ice coverage of pertinent infrastructure/landscaping. If requests come in, they will be sent back to you with a note that it is your responsibility to re-apply after April 1st of 2020, we will not keep your request on queue. During this time, however, we will accept As Constructed Grade Certificates for review to facilitate a quicker turnaround in the spring. Again, no inspections, therefore no refunds will be processed during this time. Please have your requests submitted prior to  October 25, 2019 in order to ensure that inclement weather does not hamper the last week of inspections. Keep in mind that a performance inspection will not be carried out unless all permits for that build have been closed. A landscaping inspection will not be completed until an As Constructed Grading Certificate has been submitted and accepted by the City first.

  • To receive an inspection for the next available business day, you must book before 2 PM of the previous business day.  (For example, book your inspection by 2 pm on Friday for Monday inspection.) 
  • For electrical and plumbing inspections, the City requires a number of requests before an inspection day is set. 
  • Additional fees may be charged for any re-inspections beyond the required inspection due to deficiencies or missing documents.
