Interim Development Review Process during COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has established an interim development review process to enable priority development applications to move forward for review and public engagement, while maintaining safe physical distancing measures.

In order to allow for applications to proceed to the committee review and public consultation stage, an interim development review process has been developed that supports community engagement and meets physical distancing requirements in response to COVID-19.  This process affects Public Hearings, development-related City committees, applicant-led consultation, and City-led consultation.

Under this interim process, applications will be able to proceed to committee review and public consultation if they address one of Council’s strategic priorities (e.g., affordable housing, non-profit child care, or reconciliation) and/or will generate relatively low public interest, and do not require an amendment to the Official Community Plan.  Once the interim development review process has been tested and adjusted, a broader range of applications will be able to move forward for committee review and public consultation.
