Building on or Near Steep Slopes
 
  Index  

 

 

Steep slopes along rivers are usually unstable and dangerous as building sites. Some of these slopes in the Rideau River valley are regulated by the RVCA. Call us before you place fill, build, or add to an existing building on a steep slope. We will let you know if the slope is regulated and if you require a permit.
