Development Application Review Project

Development Application Process Review 2018

Please help us 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 types (DVP, DP, Sign), and Subdivision.

Survey  (March 5 to 23)

Below is a link to our brief online survey to help us identify issues or concerns regarding the current processes and share ideas on how we can improve. The input will be collected by the consultants working on this project (Leftside Partners), and shared together with other feedback and findings at a Developers’ Forum in April.

Interviews (March)

As part of the process, the consultants will be conducting some interviews directly with members of the development community. As a former or current applicant, you may be contacted by Leftside Partners Inc. over the next couple weeks to respond to some questions based on your experience with the Town and its processes.  

Developers’ Forum (April, date TBD)

Once the survey and interview feedback has been gathered and analyzed, the Town will be hosting a forum in April to share the results and preliminary ideas for enhancements and improvements based on the feedback received. The Forum will be an opportunity for the development community to provide feedback on those improvements with the Town. Stay tuned for the location and details of the forum, which will be provided in coming weeks.
