Development Permit

A Development Permit is needed for most new construction, additions, or in the case of a change of use in an existing building. The process and timelines vary depending on the local municipality and the type of development proposed. The planning process can be complex and is generally multi-disciplinary. CITYTREND prepares programs that guide Development Permit proposals to receive the approvals for your project efficiently and quickly.

“Properly managing a Development Permit can save time and reduce
the risk associated with the approval.”

For more details regarding a Development Permit, please contact CITYTREND for a free consultation.

Know before you start

Knowledge is the key factor for success with City Hall. We have identified four categories to develop a complete understanding and ability to successfully manage a project to approval. We call it the four “Ps.”


This pillar is critical. Understanding the regulations is important to evaluate up front if a project is at risk or not.


The approval process will include the input from dozens of people ranging from community groups to technical reviews from engineers or feedback from the parks department. Our understanding of the role of each referee is an important piece of the puzzle.


The approval process will differ depending on the application itself. We map the process steps clearly so you can keep track of your progress and develop a predictable timeline.


This is usually where our clients excel but understanding your own product is key in being able to make adjustment along the way and respond to comments and feedback.
