When do I require a development permit?

Prior to applying for a Building Permit, a Development Permit may be required for your project. Development Permits deal with a development’s impact on surrounding properties and are required for most projects requiring a Building Permit, change in use or in intensity of use of any land, building or premises. Applications for Development Permits are reviewed for conformance to the current Zoning and Building Bylaw by the Development Officer for total conformance and once approved must run a 14 day appeal period.
