dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to explore the factors which contribute to the smoothness and efficiency of development approvals processes within local government planning departments on Vancouver Island. Relevant literature was analyzed, and a framework of issues was created to outline the key components of development approvals processes and provide a basis for how those processes can be evaluated based on the public need of planners to regulate development according to municipal policy and the private need of developers to create financially viable projects. An anonymous online survey was distributed to developers and local government development planners on Vancouver Island, encouraging participants to share their experiences and provide insight into how local development approval processes could be improved. The findings from this project provide several recommendations for local governments looking to improve their development approvals process. The project functions as a starting point in the conversation directed toward improving the efficiency and user-experience of the development approvals process and invites future researchers to build on the ideas put forward.en_US
