A development application must be submitted to the City for any proposed development that is not already allowed in the regulations for a specific site.

Are you planning a renovation or building project in the City? Find out what permits you might need and request an inspection.

Both a secondary suite and a coach house are now permitted on lots zoned for single family development. 

Each neighbourhood and building within the City exhibits a degree of heritage and character unique to itself.

Land use controls the types of activities and businesses that can occur on a property. Land Use types are divided into categories like Residential, Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional.

If you are developing or renovating a property for business or residential purposes, there are a number of zoning regulations you must consider.
