Development Permits

A Development Permit is a written approval issued by the County under the Land Use Bylaw authorizing development to proceed, which includes excavating, stockpiling, building, additions, replacements, repairs, and changes in the use or intensity of a parcel of land and/or a building.

The County processes a variety of applications that impact land use in the County throughout the year, some of which require public notification and/or public input before final approval can be granted. Other applications can be approved without public consultation, assuming they meet regulations set forth in the Land Use Bylaw.

Development Permit Approvals are posted on the Public Participation Page during the 21-day appeal period. These decisions may be appealed to the relevant appeal board during this time. The Development Approval is not final until the appeal period has expired. See below for more information on how to submit an Appeal.
