Whether you are looking to build an addition to your home or redevelop multiple lots, starting out the development process can seem a bit daunting.
Where to Start
First, you need to know what the project involves. Are you applying for a variance, a rezoning, or for a development application? If you aren't sure, please contact Development Services staff who can help you further.
If you know what you are applying for and what your project involves, then click here to make sure your property has the correct zoning for what you are looking to do.
Once you know what zoning restrictions may apply to your property, you are now ready to file your application or ask for a rezoning.

If you are rezoning, one of your first steps will be meeting with the neighbourhood Community Association Land Use Committee. Gaining community support is an important part of any development permit process.
If you wish to look into rezoning, please contact Development Services for your next steps.
