  • WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENT PERMIT?

    A development permit, or DP, is a tool which most municipalities have in place to regulate types of development. The DPs are clearly defined in their Official Community Plans and normally include a map showing what areas require a DP and which kind of DP is required. For example, adjacent to most streams a DP is required. Typically in order to apply for a DP, you need to retain the services of a Qualified Environmental Professional, or QEP. The QEP performs any necessary assessments and completes the DP application form. The application is submitted to the municipality for approval.

    WHAT DOES A DP COST?

    The cost of a DP ranges considerably with the nature of the project. Most projects are under $30,000 with residential applications typically under $10,000.

    HOW LONG DOES A DP PERMIT TAKE?

    Most applications are in the order of a few months to a year - this varies completely with the type of DP required.
