What is the City's process for rezoning?

The rezoning process does not begin until a formal application is filed with the City. Here is a chart that outlines the City’s rezoning process. .

The Development Process

* Taken from the Local Government Act - After the hearing, the Council/Board, the council or board members, or committees may not hear from or receive correspondence from interested parties relating to the rezoning proposal. They can hear from their own staff, lawyers and consultants (Hubbard v. West Vancouver, 2005) but if they receive a delegation or correspondence they will be, in effect, reopening the hearing and will run the risk of having the bylaw quashed.
