Landscaping Bond Returns




How Do I Get My Landscape Deposit Returned?

To ensure that on-site landscaping is provided as planned and required by the Development Permit, the City of Langford requires performance bonding at the time of the building permit. Once the actual landscaping work has been completed, there is a process for having this bonding returned, however this process does not occur automatically.

When your on-site landscaping is substantially complete, please have the landscape architect or landscape professional who prepared the plan approved by the Development Permit submit a letter to the Planning Department advising that the landscape works have been completed in accordance with the Development Permit plan. When the Planning Department has received and reviewed this letter, the City will return your bonding.

Please allow 2 weeks to process a cheque, if your bonding was provided in the form of a cash deposit with the City. If your bonding was made in the form of a letter of credit, the processing time will be approximately one week.

The process for returning bonding for frontage improvements is similar, but enquiries about this form of bonding should be directed to the Engineering Department.

If you have any further questions regarding landscaping bonds, please call the Planning Department any time between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.
