Development Approvals and Subdivision

Zoning bylaws establish specific frameworks for development, such as permitted uses of land and guidance as to how development will occur. Zoning must be consistent with the policy framework as adopted in the Official Community Plan (OCP). Other regulatory bylaws that guide development may include subdivision and development servicing bylaws, development cost charges, sign bylaws and specific plans for development within hazardous areas, transportation, infrastructure, or park development.

Specific Planning Applications that may be applicable to your development may include:

To find out more information about a property, please use our on-line mapping tool Castle Maps. This tool will allow you to look up what zoning is applicable to a specific property and any other information you may need to assist you in your development decisions.

Information pertaining to each application type can be found below under downloads.

We recommend before making an application that you meet with Development Services staff to discuss your proposal so we can better support you through the process.
