Description
List of issued building permits from the City of Edmonton - Sustainable Development Department for the public to do construction or maintenance on a structure located in the City. Note - All records start from January 1, 2009. Please note : the decision was made to not release applicant information on this dataset as it was seen as a potential privacy issue. For instance, if a high profile member of the public were to apply for a permit, their name (and consequently address) would show up on this table and become easily searchable by the public. We viewed this as a potential issue and decided to publish the dataset without applicant information.
