Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for March 23, 2020 - Permit, Licence and Inspection Services


We are continuing to monitor and respond to new information about COVID-19.  As we are dealing with an unprecedented situation that is impacting us all, the health and safety of our customers and staff is of utmost importance.

In an effort to minimize contact with City staff, please refer to the City of Langley website at  Any questions or inquiries regarding building permits and licences can be emailed to or you can contact us at 604.514.2804. 

In further efforts to practice physical distancing as outlined by the British Columbia Center for Disease Control, the following measures have been put in place:

  • Building permit applications (all types) can continue to be made; however, completed applications will only be accepted by dropping off the drawings and required documentation into the bin provided at the North entrance of City Hall.  Should there be any missing documentation, the applicant will be contacted by email.
  • Until further notice, we are cancelling all pre-application meetings.  Please email or phone 604.514.2804 for any questions or concerns.


  • All inspections for business licence and occupied single-family dwellings will pause until further notice. This includes large publicly occupied buildings and secondary suite inspections.  Inspection requests will be reviewed at the start of each day and those inspections which will not be carried out will be notified.


If City inspection staff attend a job site and people in proximity to the inspection are presenting any signs of any illness, the inspection will not be conducted.

Work within the Permit, Licence & Inspection Department is continuing; however, we will continue to take direction from health authorities on further closures and cancellations.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience.
