A Development Variance Permit is a permit approved by District of Lantzville Council that allows a variation of specific requirements of Municipal Bylaws, such as the Zoning Bylaw, Subdivision and Development Bylaw or Sign Bylaw pursuant to Part 14 of the Local Government Act.

Use, density & floodplain provisions cannot be varied by a Development Variance Permit.

A Development Variance Permit is necessary when your proposal requires District standards or requirements to be relaxed or varied. These standards include:

  • Minimum standards of building form such as height, setbacks or parking.
  • Screening provisions or height of fencing.
  • Subdivision regulations; minimum lot width where variation does not affect density. Also, servicing requirements may be varied.
  • Sign regulations, area of sign, dimensions and siting.
  • Landscaping.

Please contact the District Office at 250.933.8093 if you'd like to set up an appointment with the District's Community Planner.
