Bylaw No. 900 regulates where docks, private mooring buoys, and swimming platforms may be located, type and the number of docks and buoys permitted, and which properties are eligible to place them.

Currently, if your parcel is located in Electoral Area C or F; you may need to apply for a Development Permit for your dock, private mooring buoy, or swimming platform. Development Permits are designated in an Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw, see more information about the Foreshore and Water Development Permit Areas on the Dock & Buoy Regulation webpage.
