The City is pleased to offer regular forums and lunch ’n’ learn sessions for local builders and developers. In recent forums, we asked builders and developers what topics they wanted to hear about and we heard you! Our focus for the upcoming forums are the Energy Step Code, proposed bylaw and building inspection changes.
Local industry professionals interested in attending any of the forums are reminded to reserve a spot by calling the Development Services at 250-286-5725 as seating is limited or email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our email list to receive information about the forums.
Wednesday December 3 - Development Permit Handbook
In its ongoing efforts to streamline the development approval process, we have released an illustrated, easy-to-read handbook to help developers prepare Development Permit applications. The handbook is now available online at the City’s website. The handbook provides clear and concise direction on submission requirements along with a visual interpretation of the City’s development permit guidelines. This forum will attempt to go into detail in the thoughts behind the handbook and to respond to questions the public has provided us on the handbook to date.
