What people generally refer to as a building permit is called a Land Use Permit in Bayfield County. All structures in 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 (excepting alterations which do not change the size or shape of a structure); 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 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.
