Concurrent Submission

You now have the option of applying for a land use amendment and development permit together with a Concurrent Submission.

About

Previously if you needed to redesignate a property for development, you would apply for a land use amendment application to be approved by City Council before submitting a development permit. This could take quite some time. Now, you can save four months or more.

You can submit a development permit application at any point after a land use amendment. The two applications are reviewed side by side (although not necessarily by the same file manager) and will have separate Detailed Team Review documents to make it easier to understand which comments and conditions apply to each application.

The City's optional concurrent submission process for land use amendment and development permit applications is currently being used by large scale development applicants.

How do I apply?

We recommend that you book a consultation with a City planner to find out if a concurrent submission is right for your project. Once you've confirmed that concurrent submission is right for you, you will find the Complete Application Requirement Lists (CARLs) outline what you'll need to submit with your applications. A special declaration form is required if you're applying concurrently.
