Planning & Development Services Department

Do your part to assist the City of Armstrong in minimizing what goes into our landfills with this comprehensive waste collection program. Learn about your collection services and find out what goes in and what stays out of each cart, bin or bag.

The Planning Services Department is responsible for Long Range and Current Planning and Building Inspection Services. 

Long Range Planning involves policy development to guide future land-use within the City such as the Official Community Plan (OCP), Active Transportation Plan or special projects. 

Current Planning involves processing applications to change land-use or develop land that meets existing permitted land-uses such as OCP Amendments, Zoning Amendments, Subdivisions, Development Permits, Development Variance Permits and Temporary Use Permits.

The Province of British Columbia has enacted the British Columbia Building Code to govern standards in respect of the construction, alteration, repair and demolition of buildings and structures in municipalities. The City of Armstrong administers the BC Building Code by issuing Building Permits, by following the procedures outlined in the City of Armstrong Building Bylaw.

A comprehensive application package with information sheets is available for download. Each individual form and info sheet available for download.

All City maps are located here.
