All land use and development in Qualicum Beach is managed through Zoning and Development Permit Areas. All construction activity in Qualicum Beach generally requires a permit of some type. The permitting process varies according to the size, location, or type of construction/development proposed. Simple projects may only require a building permit, while large developments may require a rezoning, Development Permit, and/or Development Variance Permit.
