Stormwater Management Requirements for New Developments

Why Stormwater Management?

Rainfall on hard surfaces such as roads, driveways and paths increases the demand on our storm sewer infrastructure which can negatively impact our creeks and Burrard Inlet. For this reason, the City has adopted a source control target of up to 70% of the peak annual average daily rainfall to lessen this impact. In order to reach these targets all new developments will be required to meet stormwater management targets.

All new developments (single family or larger) in the City of North Vancouver must submit a Stormwater Management Plan.
Single family or two family (duplex) developments applying to the City of North Vancouver for a Building Permit must submit a Stormwater Management Plan to demonstrate how you are going to meet the City’s target volumes for stormwater infiltration on your redeveloped property.
Stormwater management plans for developments including three units or more must be designed by a qualified professional. 
Some properties in the City do not have a storm sewer available. For single family (1 unit) developments the City offers a unit rate to extend storm sewer to a maximum value based on the width of property.
