The Official Community Plan (OCP) and
Zoning Bylaw are used to regulate land use and handle issues like the nature of development, uses, and the subdivision of land in Prince George. Proposals to develop land must be reviewed by City staff at a pre-application meeting where applicants will be informed on what to expect in the formal application process. Contact the Development Services department in City Hall to book a pre-application meeting or for more information.
