A development permit issued pursuant to the Land Use Bylaw is not a building permit. Work or construction of any buildings related to the development permit process shall neither commence nor proceed until a building permit has been issued, pursuant to applicable bylaws and regulations.
A development permit for all discretionary use or any permitted use for which a variance or relaxation was granted by the Municipal Planning Commission, does not come into effect until 14 days after the date on which the Notice of Decision appears in the local newspaper.
Any development proceeded with by the applicant prior to the expiry of this period is done solely at the risk of the applicant.
A Notice of Decision shall be given for all development permits that have been issued in any or all of the following forms:
a. send the Notice of Decision by ordinary mail to the applicant;
b. publish the Notice of Decision in a newspaper circulating in the municipality stating the legal description and the civic address of the lot of the development and identifying the use which has been approved for such lot; and/or
c. send the Notice of Decision for discretionary uses by ordinary mail to adjacent landowners, authorities, agencies, or persons it deems necessary; and/or
d. post the Notice of the Decision conspicuously on the property for which the application has been made, stating the legal description and the civic address and identifying the use which has been approved for such lot.
