Name of creator
The Development Permit Board was created in 1975 by means of the approval of by-law no. 4876. The by-law also created the affiliated Development Permit Advisory Panel. By-law 5869 (Feb. 5, 1985) repealed by-law 4876 and reconstituted the Board and the Panel, with minimal changes to the mandate and composition of the two bodies.
Records were retained in the Planning Department Library before transfer the Archives.
