A development permit may be required in addition to a Building Permit if you are constructing a new multi-family or commercial building or for any exterior changes to a multi-family or commercial building. Use this map to determine if you are in Development Permit Area.
In the Resort Municipality of Whistler's (RMOW's) Official Community Plan (OCP), some lands are designated as Development Permit Areas with associated guidelines for form and character of residential, commercial and industrial development, protection of the natural environment and protection from hazardous conditions.
To determine if your Multi-Family or Commercial building falls within a Development Permit Area, consult the DP Map - Multi-Family and Commercial.
If your property is in a Development Permit Area and you are planning to construct any exterior alterations, a Development Permit may be required prior to the issuance of a Building Permit.
