Retaining Walls Nanaimo
In the Nanaimo area Blast Rock retaining walls that are over 1.2 meters (4ft) in height will require a building permit. In addition any retaining walls over 1.2 meters (4ft) in height must be designed and signed off by a geotechnical and structural engineer to ensure the wall is properly constructed for your site conditions. An exception applies to the permit for “terraced or tiered” retaining walls where the distance between terraces is equal to or greater than twice the height of each terrace. This does not account for any covenants that might be on your property.
