Here's my suggestion: don't get ensnared in the city of toronto permitting red tape. Don't apply for a permit. You would not believe the endless, repeated frustration we had (for over a year! all the way to committee of adjustment!) just to get a rear 'mudroom' rebuilt - with the exact same dimensions!
Best of luck if you go ahead with permitting - but don't say I didn't warn ya ...
Three years ago we had our old, unsafe garage torn down. We then put up a carport. We did not apply for a permit.
What I did do was take photographs of the work done on the foundations for the carport - that way, if someone did complain I could show them the photographs to prove the work was done to code. Also, by the very nature of it being a carport, all the inside stuff is open for observation so anybody needing to inspect same would not have any trouble doing so.
As I said, it was three years ago and we have not heard one thing from the City. In fact, most of the neighbours complimented us on the design. That may be the trick - make it look really good and no one will complain.
