Snapshot of development applications, 1-Nov-2016

508 Helmcken DP sign
As a free public service CityHallWatch takes a monthly snapshot of the Development Applications listed on the City of Vancouver website.

Our count for November 1, 2016 shows 69 “DE” applications (excluding 15 medical marijuana-related applications), 52 “DP” applications (excluding 1 medical marijuana-related). Of the total, 15 are “concurrent with rezoning,” 2 are revised, 1 is on hold, 3 are “unscheduled from the Development Permit Board,” and some may have also had a change of address.

Anyone interested in these projects is also encouraged to periodically check the Urban Design Panel (UDP) and Development Permit Board (DPB) schedules, as many projects appear before them as part of the approval pipeline. Check often, as sometimes their agendas appear publicly online just the day of the meeting. As of today, only one item (1345 Davie, December 12) is on the DPB future schedule.

(We also take rezoning application snapshots. Search for “rezoning” and “snapshot” in the CityHallWatch search field.) If you are concerned about an application and would like to publicize it or get more info, send us an e-mail at, and we might be able to look deeper. The following information is simply copied as text from the City’s site. Many links will stop working over time. For current list, click:

If you as a citizen would like to do one small thing to make the City more accountable, consider writing Mayor and Council asking them to make Development Applications archives available online. The City website provides a list of archived Rezoning Applications (here) going back to 2011, so why not full information on past Development Applications too?

For reference, we’ve reproduced the full list of development applications below:
