Overview of DPB (text from City website)
Some development permit applications may have a significant impact on their surroundings, because of the scale and context of the project or because of community controversy about the project. Those applications are reviewed by the Development Permit Board. All other development permit applications are reviewed by the Director of Planning or their delegate(s). The Board is limited in its authority by existing zoning and parking regulations, and by the Official Development Plan (ODP) provisions that City Council has enacted. These provisions generally outline acceptable uses and building forms in a given area. The Board cannot deny a development if it meets the zoning / ODP and guidelines, or approve a development if it does not fall within the zoning / ODP. The Development Permit Board may approve, approve with certain conditions, or refuse an application.
