Around Town: City of Campbell River launches new development handbook

October 11, 2018

To streamline the development permit and approval process, the City of Campbell River has updated an illustrated, easy-to-read handbook for developers preparing applications.

The City of Campbell River has launched a new development permit handbook to streamline the development permit application and approval process.

The Development Handbook was first created in 2013 to provide a visual interpretation of the City’s development permit guidelines. It is a comprehensive guide on development permit submission requirements, including how Official Community Plan guidelines apply to new commercial and multi-family projects.

The first part of the handbook covers elements needed for a complete application package and why that information is needed. The second part interprets the Official Community Plan’s form and character design guidelines and offers examples of how development sites can be designed to meet those guidelines.

The new development permit handbook is available on the City’s website at
