A certified model application is not a permit application. Certified models are a unique building design, that are intended to be constructed on multiple lots (e.g., in a subdivision). Instead of submitting for a lot-specific application, a certified model may be applied for. Once approved, the certified model is referenced in a repeat housing (RP) permit application for a specific lot.
Examples of certified models include: single detached dwelling, semi-detached dwelling, detached garage, semi-detached garage.
Townhouse units are not eligible for the certified model program.
