Developments

Interested to know whats happening in View Royal?

Understanding the development process can be confusing. There can be various stages that a development can appear before Council depending on what approvals are required. The same stages are required for a single family dwelling as a large scale development.   
See Specific Development details below

How does development happen?

In order for development to happen on any scale the project may require up to three or four applications. These application happen in a specific order like a checklist. If the land/ project already meets the prescribed citeria of that stage then it can skip that application and move to the next. The order is as follows:

1. Zoning Requirments - does the project meet its current zoning? If it doesn't it will require a Rezoning application. This application speaks specifically to uses that are permitted like commercial, residential, industrial or a combination thereof.  It also determines the density that is permitted. Density is best illustrated in that low density =  single/ double unit per parcel and medium = multiple units per parcel to high = multiple units with multiple floors. 

2. Official Community Plan(OCP) Requirements - An OCP application is required IF there is a rezoning and the zoning being requested does not match the OCP. The OCP is a document created by the Town that identifies how and where they would like to see see certain types of development should there be a rezoning. If a development is contrary to the plan it must ask Council for permission to amend the OCP to permit the development to proceed. This process looks at the appropriatness of the application in the area and the impacts it will create. 

3. Development Permit Requirments - This application is most common and happens for a variety of reasons. A Development Permit is used to look at the Form & Character or Environmental impacts of a development. This is the stage that the details of a developemnt are required. This application creates an approved document which then illustrates how a development will look as well as requirements the development must undertake. Details can include how a structure will look from choice of colour to landscaping and lighting. It may include other items like restoration or remediation requirements or site servicing requirments. This document is when a development has finally taken shape and the Town now knows what is expected to be constructed and how.

4. Development Variance Pemit - STILL NEED TO FILL THIS IN. HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS
