In its ongoing efforts to streamline the development approval process, the Land Use Services Department has developed an illustrated, easy-to-read handbook to help developers prepare Development Permit applications.
The City’s Land Use Department has been developing the document over the last few months with input from the development community and the Advisory Planning and Environment Commission.
The handbook provides clear and concise direction on submission requirements along with a visual interpretation of the City’s development permit guidelines.
The first part of the handbook covers elements needed for a complete application package and why that information is needed. The second part interprets the Official Community Plan’s form and character design guidelines and offers examples of how development sites can be designed to meet those guidelines.
