Development Application Review Project

Development Application Process Review 2018

The Town is working with the development community to identify ways to enhance our current review processes in order to meet the needs of Ladysmith’s growing community and the goals of the development industry!

Development applications that are the subject of this review include: Official Community Plan amendments, Rezoning, Permits of various type s (DVP, DP, Sign), and Subdivision.

Survey and Interviews  (March)

An on-line survey and one-on-one interviews were conducted by the project consultants in March to help us identify issues or concerns regarding the current processes and to share ideas on how we can improve. 

Developers’ Forum (April 12)

Members of Town Council and senior staff hosted 13 applicants/developers/owners at a 2-hour forum on April 12th.  Thank you to everyone who attended! The project consultants presented the results and preliminary ideas for enhancements and improvements based on the feedback received from the on-line survey and interviews. The Forum was an opportunity for the development community to provide feedback on those improvements with the Town.

The display panels from the Developers’ Forum are available here: Developers Forum Panels

A newsletter distributed at the event is available here: Developers Forum newsletter

Feedback can be provided up to April 20th.  A feedback form is available here: Developers Forum feedback form
