Development – One Stop Shop

For all development related activity within the community, the Community Planning and Development Services Department has evolved into a one-stop service department to assist you with your development proposal. By combining short and long-range planning with building, development engineering and business licensing responsibilities, the Development Services Department will be able to assist you with all aspects of your proposal. The Development Review Committee, made up of various departmental staff, meets every two weeks, and provides an opportunity for you to present your development proposal before submitting formal applications. To assess what applies to your proposal please set up an appointment for a pre-application meeting with the Development Services Staff who will be happy to assist you.
