A Streets and Landscape Permit (SLP) is required for any project that involves change, excavation or construction in the public realm, such as sidewalks, landscapes, or for any related construction activity outside a development project boundary as defined by the Development Permit. Examples include excavation for new utilities or repairs, new street furniture or lighting, and landscape projects.
The SLP process ensures that any proposed changes comply with the Land Use Plan, Vancouver Campus Plan, Neighbourhood Plans, and campus guidelines and standards. Where appropriate, the public and the academic community are consulted.
A complete application consists of the submission requirements listed in the UBC Development and Building Regulations. Depending on your project, you may also need to review the UBC Development Handbook.
- Identify the street/location for your proposed project, provide a scope of work, estimated cost of construction and review the Terms and Conditions in the application form.
- Complete the Streets and Landscape Permit Application Form and submit with all required materials to Campus + Community Planning. Please note that you must sign and return the Terms and Conditions with the application form.
Streets and Landscape Permit applications and any applicable fees must be submitted to the Development Services unit of Campus + Community Planning. In order for us to accept and process your application, you must submit all the required information. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
Note: Please allow a minimum of 10 working days for review of your submission. The application will be circulated to various departmental staff for review or comment. The permit is issued by the Director of Planning with conditions (see below).
