Okanagan Falls Commercial Development Permit Area

The Regional District has implemented an Okanagan Falls Commercial Development Permit Area in Electoral Area “D” (Okanagan Falls / Eastside Road) in order to establish objectives for the “form and character” of new commercial development.

Okanagan Falls is the commercial core of Electoral Area “D” and serves as a strong focal point as well as providing a sense of identity for the community.  With Highway 97 running through Okanagan Falls, the community would like to encourage a pedestrian oriented, vibrant hub of mixed use commercial and residential land uses in the town-site.

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 “D” 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.
