City of Langford

Live the lifestyle.

Planning

The Planning Department maintains two key documents for the City: The City's Official Community Plan and Langford's Land Use Regulation - Zoning Bylaw No. 300. This Department also oversees applications to amend the Official Community Plan, as well as rezone land or vary bylaw requirements through the Development Variance Permit process. The City Planner has been authorized by Council to issue Development Permits and sign permits.

The Planning Department also oversees applications for Temporary Commercial or Industrial Use permits.

In accordance with Provincial policy, applications to exclude land from the Provincial Agriculture Land Reserve (ALR) are reviewed by Council's Agriculture Advisory Committee before being sent to the Provincial Agriculture Land Commission. Applications to the ALC may be made through the Planning Department.

The Planning Department is headed by the City Planner who directs two Senior Planners, two Planners and the Planning Assistant.

Planning Staff are available for in-person inquiries at City Hall and by phone.
