2018 Building Permits $10M Off Pace

Sarnia’s building permits are lagging well behind the pace set in 2017.

City hall issued 43 permits in May with a dollar value of $4.3-million.

The year-to-date total is almost ten million dollars behind last year at $27.8-million, but 2017 did see some large permits for the ongoing Lambton College expansion.

There were nine single-family housing starts in May for a year-to-date total of 39, down from 49 through the first five months of 2017.
