Building and planning permit applications are reviewed to ensure that the proposed works conform to Zoning and Parking Bylaw 303.
Zoning and Parking Bylaw 303 is a bylaw that regulates the use of land, buildings, structures and parking within Whistler. It governs what may or may not be built on a property, and should be consulted during the design phase of a project to ensure that the proposed works adhere to the bylaw.
All Building Permit applications are reviewed to ensure that the proposed works are in compliance with Zoning and Parking Bylaw 303. This includes:
- the maximum allowable Gross Floor Area;
- maximum roof height;
- building setbacks;
- minimum number of parking stalls; and
- other regulations that affect the design process.
The Zoning and Parking Bylaw 303 also:
- regulates the allowed uses for properties; and
- designates which properties can be used for commercial, industrial, or residential developments, as well as whether or not auxiliary dwelling units are permitted on a property.
