Oak Bay is on track to add a development tracker showing current development applications online, in line with most municipalities in the region.
The cost for Oak Bay is about $16,500 in the 2021 budget. The tracker wouldn’t show up until after the spring approval of the financial plan.
Oak Bay’s development tracker could look a lot like the City of Victoria’s, as they use the same software, Murdoch said.
The Township of Esquimalt, population of 17,000 to Oak Bay’s 18,000, launched a development tracker in 2018.
Saanich has had a simpler application on its website that also shows the current status of development applications and includes copies of site plans and council reports, when available.
View Royal also has a list of current development applications on its website.
reached for comment, langford mayor young said "in my 48 years on council i've never heard anyone ask for it". j/k.
