Policy P2 Application/Approval Process - Land Use Bylaws


Certain portions of the application process for amendments to the zoning and OCP bylaws are at the discretion of the board of directors.  It is advisable and expedient to define the process that is best suited to accommodate the public and reduce unnecessary time spent at the board table.

That upon receipt of an application to amend the zoning bylaw or Official Community Plan bylaw, and on receipt of the required application fee, staff are authorized to proceed with obtaining the responses from various agencies prior to first reading of a potential bylaw.  Agencies include, but are not limited to:

Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure
Agricultural Land Commission (where applicable)
Vancouver Coastal Health Authority
Department of Fisheries and Oceans
Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations - Archaeology
School District No. 49
Nuxalk Nation Chief and Council
Heiltsuk Tribal Council (Electoral Areas A&B only)
Wuikinuxv First Nation (Formerly Oweekeno - Electoral Areas A&B only)

After the applicant has been informed of the responses from outside agencies and upon his or her recommendation to proceed, the information will be compiled and submitted to the board in the form of a staff report.  This report will form the basis for first and subsequent readings of the amending bylaw.

If the applicant does not wish to proceed to first reading, 50% of the application fee as specified by regional district bylaws, will be refunded to the proponent and the rest retained by the regional district to cover the costs associated with the initial inquiries and bylaw preparation.
