A Development Permit may be required in addition to a Building Permit for the construction of a new single family or duplex home, or for any exterior changes to a single family or duplex home.
In the Resort Municipality of Whistler's (RMOW's) Official Community Plan (OCP), some lands are designated as Development Permit Areas. These areas have associated guidelines for form and character of development, protection of the natural environment and protection from hazardous conditions.
To determine if your Single Family or Duplex home falls within a Development Permit Area, consult the DP Map - Single Family.
If your property is in a Development Permit Area and you are planning to construct a new home, or undertake any exterior alterations, a Development Permit may be required prior to the issuance of a Building Permit.
To begin the Development Permit process, contact the Planning Department.
