Planning & Development Resources
The ACRD's Planning and Development Department is often the first point of contact for property owners, buyers, and developers with land use and building questions regarding zoning, subdivision, building permits, crown leases or Regional District bylaws. If you have questions about where on a property a building can be constructed, or what types of buildings or uses are allowed, the Planning and Building team can answer your questions. The department provides zoning, land use, and building services in all six ACRD Electoral Areas (EAs) (download PDF map of EAs here). Note that many enquiries concern matters where the Regional District has no jurisdiction and you may need to consult another government office. Refer to this contact page for more information: www.acrd.bc.ca/contactplanning Also, a collection of frequently asked questions is listed under the Application Process pull down menu at the top or the headings to the left.
