Campbell River introduces development permit handbook

In its ongoing efforts to streamline the development approval process, the City of Campbell River Land Use Services Department has developed an illustrated, easy-to-read handbook to help developers prepare Development Permit applications.

The city’s Land Use Department has been developing the document over the last few months with input from the development community and the Advisory Planning and Environment Commission.

“It’s the goal of the Land Use Services department to maximize the efficiency of the application process by fostering a clear and easily understood development approval process,” says Ross Blackwell, the city’s land use services manager.

“This handbook is another tool the City has developed to support builders and developers achieve their goals in Campbell River,” says Councillor Ryan Mennie, the chair of the Advisory Planning and Environment Commission. “We look forward to hearing feedback on the handbook so we can continue to fine-tune our process and this document.”
