In January of 2018 Amherstburg Town Council approved a By-law to regulate activity on Town Highways, Road Allowances and Right of Ways.

A permit process is now in place for all works being performed on the Town’s property. Such works include new driveway accesses, hard surfacing of driveways on Town property, existing access widening, curb cuts, etc.

Permit application forms are available at the following locations:

  • Public Works & Engineering – 512 Sandwich Street South (for existing modifications)

Completed applications can be submitted in person to the Engineering and Public Works Department at 512 Sandwich Street South or can be scanned and emailed to

Accompanying the application the owner/ contractor must provide the following:

  • $249.00 non-refundable permit fee
  • $1,000 indemnity deposit (refunded after final inspection)
