Prepare Your Proposal
Submit your Application form along with required copies of your blueprints (as outlined in the application form).
Following the receipt of a formal application, including required application fees, a technical review is initiated. The application will involve a circulation to other municipal departments and outside agencies, (e.g. Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, BC Hydro etc.). This review period takes approximately eight weeks.
If the proposal is considered acceptable, a Preliminary Layout Review (PLR) is issued. This is a letter that advises the applicant of the requirements and conditions that must be met before final subdivision approval will be considered. The PLR will include specific requirements such as servicing, parkland dedication, the payment of Development Cost Charges, requirements for restrictive covenants, and construction. If the proposal is not considered acceptable, the application is denied and the Approving Officer states the reasons. A PLR is valid for 180 days.
It should be noted that Preliminary Layout Review does not constitute Final Approval and can be revoked at any time.
