Before Submitting a Development Application - new process effective December 31, 2019

The preliminary step to all development involves a pre-application review (PAR) meeting to discuss the applicant’s initial proposal.

The applicant must complete and submit the online *Pre-Application Review (PAR) Form and submit payment ($334.95) in order to be listed on the next available PAR meeting agenda (see form for more details).  Meetings are held every two weeks, as shown in the 2021 PAR SCHEDULE.

There is a limit of 6 meetings per scheduled meeting date.

Your spot is reserved once all the requirements having been received (application form, payment, draft plan and or any other requirement indicated by staff). Reservations are on a first come first serve basis. 

Once the internal meeting has been held to review your proposal the application fee is non-refundable.

Planning staff as well as other relevant District of Mission employees will attend a Development Application Review Team (DART) meeting to discuss your application and identify any specific information that may be required for your development. Staff will then contact you with your PAR meeting date to attend. A letter will be sent to you outlining a variety of information that you will need to submit for your application.

This is a new form that must be submitted for PAR applications.  Please contact or call 604-820-3748 if you encounter any issues using this form.
