What people generally refer to as a building permit is called a Land Use Permit in Bayfield County. All structures in Shoreland/Floodplain areas shall require a land use permit.
A land use permit shall be required for any new residence, any building erected, relocated or structurally altered, any change in the use of the land; or where any use of the land is altered.
A land use permit shall be obtained prior to the initiation of construction or a change in land use. ** If adding an attached or detached Deck(s) a land use permit is required. ** No permit shall be issued if the applicant is in violation of the Bayfield County Zoning Ordinance, Flood Plain Ordinance, Shoreland-Wetlands Zoning Ordinance, or Subdivision Control Ordinance. Setback Compliance: Non-Habitable Structure Compliance
All structures shall meet prescribed setback standards (including eaves and overhangs) for the zoning district in which they are located. All structures in shoreland or floodplain areas shall require a land use permit.
A non-shoreland residential land use permit shall not be required for a residential accessory structure (non-habitable) of less than two hundred (200) square feet in area (does not apply to additions or alterations of a structure), or for a private communication device, if not in a floodplain. A temporary structure of more than two hundred (200) square feet shall require a temporary permit.
