Submitting a development application form

All development applications except for those to the Committee of Adjustment can be filled out electronically. The online application forms contain useful links and additional information to help applicants navigate through the development review process. Applications also include a fee calculator to help ensure that proper fees are collected with a submission.

  1. Please note that applications forms cannot be completed in your web browser. Please download the form and save on your computer. You will then be able to fill out the form, save and print as required.
  2. Before submitting a form, you should complete the City’s Pre-application Consultation Process – even if your application is not subject to pre-application consultation you are strongly encouraged to contact Planning staff to discuss your proposal and determine study and plan requirements.
  3. Ensure that you have attempted to complete all applicable sections of the application form. If required information is missing, the City has the ability to place your application on hold until that information is received.
  4. After you have completed your application form, you should submit it, your payment, and copies of all required studies and plans to a Client Service Centre. The application will be forwarded to the appropriate department where staff will be assigned.

All required items from the pre-consultation must be completed including engineering reports stamped and signed. Plans are to be standard A1 size (594 mm x 841 mm) or Arch D size (609.6 mm x 914.4 mm) sheets, dimensioned in metric, utilizing an appropriate Metric scale (1:200, 1:250, 1:300, 1:400 or 1:500) and all PDF submitted documents are to be unlocked and flattened.

The application is reviewed in detail by the assigned staff to ensure it is complete. Staff will advise the applicant if the application does not meet the requirements and if other information is required. It is important to note that the target timelines for applications will not commence until the submission requirements and any information or materials required to process the application are submitted by the applicant.
