Naramata Townsite Development Permit Area

The Regional District has implemented a Naramata Townsite Development Permit (NTDP) Area in Electoral Area “E” in order to establish objectives for the “form and character” of new commercial and medium density residential development.

The purpose of this NTDP Area is to ensure that revitalization reflects and enhances the quality and uniqueness of the Naramata townsite and its small village character.  The overall objective of the DP Area is to create an environment of mixed land uses of high quality design, which will contribute to the creation of a cohesive, identifiable, accessible town centre with a strong pedestrian orientation

The DP process requires an application fee, completed application form and the submission of materials (i.e. site plan and elevations) in accordance with the guidelines contained in the Electoral Area “E” Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw.  All “form and character” DPs are approved or refused by the Regional District Board.

To complete an application, please fill out the Development Permit Application Form.
