A development permit is required for most types of new construction, redevelopment projects, additions, signs, accessory buildings, home based businesses and changes in use of land or a building.
The purpose of a development permit is to ensure that all proposals comply with the Land Use Bylaw, and the general development principles within other municipal planning documents.
