City of Langford

Live the lifestyle.

Engineering

Langford's Engineering Department serves your needs in several aspects of community building: construction activities related to subdivision and capital projects/public infrastructure and public works such as road maintenance and repairs, as well as the City of Langford's ongoing beautification efforts.

The Engineering Department is organized into two areas: Construction and Public Works. Staff liaise with local counterparts at BC Transit, School District #62 (Sooke), and CRD Water all to ensure the best services possible for the City. The Engineering Department also coordinates with West Shore Environmental Services Inc., a division of Corix Utilities, who are responsible for sewer collections systems within the City of Langford.  Please see our Mandatory Sewer Connection FAQ Sheet

Staff are overseen by the City Engineer who works closely with our Approving Officer for matters related to land development and subdivision.

Two City bylaws in particular govern Engineering staff's ability to service the land in the City of Langford: Bylaw 1000, Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw and Bylaw 33, the Traffic Bylaw.

The City of Langford now has several roundabouts (traffic circles) throughout town.  For information on how to correctly use a roundabout, click here for the link to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.  This website includes interactive, animated demonstrations for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Most of our staff have a long history with the City of Langford as employees and residents and are happy to answer your day-to-day enquiries either at the City Hall Engineering counter or by phone.
