Applications for Municipal Consent must be sent to:
A Municipal Consent (MC) is the
municipality's authorization for a utility to occupy a specific location within
the City’s Rights-Of-Way (ROW). Standard
utility corridors and alignments have been established, as detailed in City of
Barrie Road Standard Drawings to avoid conflicts between existing, proposed and
future utility and municipal infrastructure.
MC’s are only issued to companies or persons who have the authority to
construct, operate and maintain their infrastructure within the ROW.
Most proposed new utility
installations within Municipal ROW require a MC with the exception of emergency
work (as defined in the Right-of-Way Activity By-law) or single service
connections not requiring alteration of adjacent infrastructure. If any portion of the proposed installation
crosses the Barrie Collingwood Railway ROW, that work is approved under a
process separate from Municipal Consents. For more information on Rail Agreements
All projects that require an MC must
also obtain a Right-of-Way Activity Permit which will not be granted until MC
The applicant is required to pay a fee for the review of their plan
drawings. The MC fees can be found in Schedule
the current Fees By-law. Fees can be
paid via cheque (made payable to the City of Barrie).
High volume applicants can
be invoiced upon request.
