PERMITS AND GUIDELINES

The well-developed infrastructure of our community can be attributed to the masterful planning that the District employed when the town was first laid-out. This has resulted in a town that is safe, aesthetically pleasing, economically efficient and encourages social interaction. These are qualities we wish to sustain while also being responsive to the changing needs of our resident and business communities. The District has established a comprehensive set of procedures that help to provide consistency and clarity for anyone considering a new development or renovation.

TAXES & INCENTIVES

The District of Tumbler Ridge sustains some of the lowest residential and business tax rates in British Columbia while maintaining exceptionally high municipal service levels. Higher levels of taxation are paid by our heavy industries such as our mining companies which allows the community to reinvest in infrastructure and service provision.
