Okanagan Falls Industrial Development Permit Area

The Regional District has implemented an Okanagan Falls Industrial Development Permit Area in Electoral Area “D” (Okanagan Falls / Eastside Road) in order to establish objectives for the “form and character” of new industrial development as well as protection of the local aquifer.

The former Weyerhaeuser site is a significantly large parcel of industrial zoned land located within a close proximity to Okanagan Falls and is an important area for future economic opportunities and re-development. In order to ensure that future development revitalizes and enhances industrial activity, the promotion of attractive design that meets the needs of industry and is compatible with surrounding developments, forms the basis of this development permit.

The DP process requires an application fee, completed application form and the submission of materials (i.e. site plan and elevations) and professional report prepared by a suitably qualified individual (i.e. professional engineer or geoscientist experienced in hydrogeological investigations) 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.
