Site Alterations & Permit Information


All work on the exterior of a park model or RV must have an approved Site Alteration Permit issued by Sherkston. In addition to the Site Alteration Permit, certain types of work will also require a permit from the City of Port Colborne.

All work must have a final inspection, with deck and shed builds requiring a mid-work inspection. If the work required a city permit, the City of Port Colborne must also do a final inspection.

Unsatisfactory work, where it is found upon inspection that the work is not as described in the application will be subject to a fine.



In the event that work was completed without satisfactory final inspection, or the work is different to what was approved, a fine of $200.00 will be applied to the site account and the work will be required to be corrected of all deficiencies.
