Each year, the CCA provides feedback on development applications in the community. Applications range from rezoning proposals to development permits to antenna permits. A full explanation of the types of development applications that receive public input can found in the following powerpoint presentation, provided by the District of Saanich Planning Department:

The CCA is committed to ensuring that neighbours of development applications are properly consulted. The CCA may report to Saanich Planning and Council and provide recommendations on proposals.

When making a decision on development applications, Saanich considers feedback from the community in addition to relevant land use plans and policies. For more info, visit our Land Use Planning section.
