In January 2013, the City Planning Division will launch a new “Case Planner Process” for discretionary planning applications. The key features of the new process are:
Assignment of a Case Planner to be the primary point of contact for applicants and to work with them prior to application submittal and through completion of the process.
Preliminary Project Review. A Case Planner will be assigned before a discretionary application is submitted to ensure applications are completed for processing and to reduce rounds of review and corrections after the application submittal.
Discretionary Applications will be submitted by appointment.
All relevant City Departments will be involved earlier in the application review process to identify potential problems early and avoid unexpected delays and cost.
