No development may take place in the South Interlake Planning District (SIPD) unless a Development Permit has been issued by the SIPD Development Officer in accordance with the applicable Zoning By-Law. Specifically, issuance of the Development Permit confirms all applicable zoning regulations have been met for a given project, including most types of construction, changes to land use, home based businesses, temporary uses and structures, and signs.

A Development Permit is required prior to the issuance of most Building Permits, however, Development and Building Permits are normally applied for concurrently. The applicable Zoning By-Law establishes certain types of development that do not require a Development Permit. To confirm if a Development Permit is required for your project, please contact the SIPD office directly.
