Applications for Municipal Consent must be sent to:
Supervisor of Engineering Standards (705) 739-4220 ext. 4723
A Municipal Consent (MC) is the municipality's authorization for a Utility Company 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 Standard Drawing BSD-42 to avoid conflicts between existing, proposed and future utility and municipal infrastructure. MC’s are only issued to utility companies who have the authority to construct, operate and maintain their infrastructure within the ROW as established through legislation, a Municipal Access Agreement (MAA) or a Franchise Agreement.
All proposed new utility installations within Municipal ROW require MC from the City’s Corporate Asset Management Department and a Right-of-Way Activity Permit (ROWAP). A ROWAP for utility works will not be granted until MC is granted by the Corporate Asset Management Department.
The applicant is required to pay a fee for the review of their plan drawings. The fee is $100.00 fee (plus HST) per sheet. Fees can be paid via cheque (made payable to the City of Barrie). Should the drawings require changes and resubmission, a fee of $50 (plus HST) per sheet will be charged. The City of Barrie will arrange for invoicing with high-volume applicants, upon request by the applicant.
