Development Permit System
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) released the Development Permit System (DPS) as a new land use planning tool to all municipalities in Ontario by Ontario Regulation 608/06 (amended by Regulation 448/07). The intent of the DPS is to provide an alternative application process that implements the long term vision for the designated DPS area while streamlining the overall process for development projects within that boundary.
The DPS combines the processes of Zoning, Minor Variances and Site Plan Control into one application under the Planning Act. The DPS process is regulated by a By-law that integrates all aspects of development for properties within a defined area, including but not limited to; permitted uses, site standards, urban design and site specific enhancements.
The DPS application has a statutory review timeline of 45 days. The reduced timeframe is intended to make a DPS application more efficient and provide the applicant/owner with flexible development opportunities that reflect the City’s vision for the surrounding community.
As with a Site Plan application, all development within the DPS area would be required to apply for a DPS Permit and meet conditions as necessary prior to the issuance of a Building Permit.
