Development Permits

The Local Government Act allows regional districts to require development permits to supplement or vary certain land use regulations. Within specified areas of the Regional District of Central Kootenay, development permits are required to ensure that new development is consistent with the objectives outlined within the applicable Official Community Plan. Those objectives include protection of the natural environment, compatibility with neighbouring activities, and preservation of heritage values.
