The Province has adopted the 2012 editions of the BC Building Code, BC Plumbing Code, and BC Fire Code (“BC Codes”) with an effective date of December 20, 2012.
Generally speaking, for building permits applied for prior to December 20, 2012 the 2006 edition of the BC Codes still apply. Therefore, the District of Lake Country will enforce the new requirements of the 2012 BCBC for all types of Building and Plumbing Permits (i.e. new construction, additions, renovations, alterations placements and tenant improvements) applied for on or after December 20, 2012.
