Other Dept/Agency Permits

Building permits are only one type of permit you may need to get before starting work on your property. It is your responsibility to obtain ALL the necessary permits from the District of Peachland or other regulating agencies before starting. Review the list of permits below to see if any apply to your project.

Development Permit Areas

Peachland has a number of Development Permit Areas (DPAs) that are described in the Official Community Plan. These include:

  • Aquatic
  • Hillside (slope over 20%)
  • Terrestrial
  • Wildfire
  • Comprehensive
  • Intensive Residential
  • Revitalization
Check with the Planning & Development Department or use the GIS (Geographic Information System) yourself (for a quicker answer) to identify any potential development permit areas that may apply to your property. If a DPA applies, you may need to get an approved Development Permit before a building permit can be issued.
