Development Applications & Forms

 

Development Permits

Development permits approve the development of a site in accordance with City standards. A development permit only approves the site for development, a building permit is still required prior to constructing any buildings on a site.

A development permit is required prior to a building permit for residential (two or more units) and non-residential (new construction) development.

 PDF Icon Application Form (605 KB)

To operate a business out of your residence, you need to first obtain two approvals:

  1. The first is a development permit. A development permit, issued by the Planning, Property and Buildings Department, allows business activities to be conducted from a residential property under the Zoning By-law.
  2. The second is a business license. A business license, issued by the Licensing Department, legally allows you to operate a business.

If you are establishing a new business in your residence, or you are changing the parameters of your existing business (e.g. change of address, changing the number of clients on your residential property), you must complete the Home-Based Business Application Form. The application form must be submitted to the Planning, Property & Buildings Department at the A.R. McDiarmid Civic Complex, 638 Princess Avenue. The license must be renewed annually through the Licensing Department at City Hall (410 - 9th Street, main floor).
