New Online Development Application Tracker

March 19, 2019

Getting information and updates about development applications in the City of Courtenay just got a lot easier, with the launch of a new online Development Tracker on the City website.

The tracker shows the application status and background documents for a variety of application types, including development permits, development variance permits, zoning bylaw amendments, official community plan amendments, and Board of Variance applications.

“This new tool represents a huge step forward in our ability to share development application information with the community,” said Ian Buck, the City’s Director of Development Services. “Until now, people interested in learning about development applications typically had to visit City Hall to see documents and background materials. Now they’ll be able to easily review this information from their desktop PC or smartphone.

“The development tracker will increase transparency and accessibility for developers, realtors, and any member of the public wishing to see what’s happening in their neighbourhood and around the city.”

The tracker includes maps, the application progress and current status, as well as any documents on file for the application, such as floor plans, landscape plans, and project descriptions.
