Cityview Portal

The Cityview Portal for online submissions is the preferred method for providing planning application forms, pertinent plans, and related documents. Upon registration, the Public Portal accepts credit card payments.  Planning Services must set the status to "Under Review and this will enable the user to Pay"  and you will be able to retrieve the receipt from the portal.   If paying for a proposal by cheque, be sure to include pertinent info for your transactions such as the address of the development proposal and project number.
