Wide Load Permits

A Wide Load Permit is required before an over dimensional item can be moved while traveling along Township Roadways. Oversized items include buildings, modular homes, docks or other structures. Please contact the Roads Department for more details.

There are 2 types of Wide Load Permit:

  1. Wide Load Permit – Single
  2. Wide Load Permit – Annual

The Permit must be completed in full with proof of insurance included and submitted to the Administrative Assistant one (1) week prior to the date of the move required. The Road Superintendent will then review the permit for approval. Once approved, payment is required in the form of cash or a cheque made out to “The Township of Minden Hills”. The original signed permit must be kept in the vehicle during the trip in the event that authorities ask to see your documentation.
