The department provides administrative services, inspection services, safety code services, legislation/regulation knowledge, liaison with clients (applicants and/or owners) as well as working with consultants, regulatory agencies and property owners/taxpayers, community groups, contractors, business, industry and residents.
These changes require that the department provide core services to clients and local ratepayers on the basis of cost recovery fees for service and tax base funding. This allows for the department to provide a one stop services concept.
We are committed to working as part of a management team to administer the planning and development services and to incorporate change and new technology, for a more efficient and effective administration of Planning and Development.
