Application Forms & Procedures

How to Make a Planning Application

  • A Pre-Application Meeting is generally required prior to submitting a Development Application. Please submit the Pre-Application Meeting Request Form (PDF) by emailing it to or submitting it to the Planning Front Counter at City Hall. Planning staff will review your application, provide an invoice for the Application Fee (payable online), and arrange for an appointment to review the development proposal with the applicant. 
  • For more complex pre-application discussions, Planning staff may request that you submit a Land Use Inquiry (Land Use Inquiry Guide and Application form) (PDF)
  • When a development proposal requires more than one application (e.g., rezoning, subdivision, development permit, variance permit, etc.), all the pending applications, drawings and reports must be submitted within one year from the date Council grants First Reading to the rezoning.
  • For further information, refer to the Development Procedures Bylaw (PDF).
  • Link to the Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) Program Policy (PDF)
