Development Permits

A Development Permit is a binding legal document that authorizes development on a specific parcel of land. In the Town of Comox a Development Permit is required for most development projects located within Development Permit Areas (See the Development Permit Area Maps for their exact locations and the Development Permit Area descriptions in the Official Community Plan). Development Permits contain conditions to ensure the development project conforms to the purpose of each Development Permit Area. A Development Permit cannot alter the use or density of a property and their conditions typically relate to the form and character and environmental regulations of the Town’s DPAs.

If you have any questions regarding Development Permits, when a Development Permit is required, or the Development Permitting Process please contact the Planning Department either in person at Town Hall or by phone at 250-339-1118.
