Highlands Development Permit Area Brochure

Highlands DPA

As part of the Official Community Plan amendment adopted in November 2013, the District of Highlands included a new development permit area – Development Permit Area (DPA) #6 – for the entire District to promote energy and water conservation as well as the reduction of greenhouse gases. This DPA only considers exterior elements of a building such as building placement to achieve solar gain, appropriately chosen tree cutting that will accommodate both solar gain and shading effects, landscaping to conserve water, etc.
