Development Control

The Development Control division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Municipality’s Land Use By-law (zoning regulations). This is primarily done through permits.  The Department also manages the Subdivision of Property.

Whenever a building changes use, for example from a jewelry store to a restaurant, a development permit is required to ensure the Municipal Bylaw is being met.

Development permits are administered in concert with Building Permits & Inspections to ensure buildings are being constructed in a safe manner. Accessory structures such as garages, signs and pools also require permits.

All special events must meet the Municipal By-Laws and events with more than 1,000 people in attendance also require a Temporary Event Permit.
