Development permit areas are established to guide developers and to assist the Village in addressing particular development issues by providing development guidelines. As well, they are intended to provide the residents of the Village with a degree of certainty that concerns regarding development, expressed during the Plan development process, will be adequately addressed.

The Village Council considers development permit applications at public meeting. A development permit must be issued before a building permit or subdivision application can be approved.

Where any one of the following conditions apply, a development permit is not required:

a) Construction involving a building floor area of 10.0metre² (107.6 feet²) or less (does not include additions to existing dwelling(s));

b) Internal alterations and renovations to a building or structure;

c) Erection of fences less than 2.0 metres (6.6 feet) in height;

d) Construction of farm buildings;

e) Growing, rearing, producing, and harvesting of agricultural products in accordance with recognized standards of the Farm Practices Protection Act and the Codes of Agricultural Practice.

f) Stream habitat enhancement work and environmental compensation work directed by senior government agencies.

g) In-stream work as deemed by the Water Act and riparian planting of native vegetation.
