Residents Invited to Provide Feedback to Future-Ready Development Services Committee

Sep 12, 2023

The Future-Ready Development Services Committee is a new, ad-hoc committee of Council with a mandate to review development services in Greater Sudbury. 

As part of its study, the committee is seeking feedback from residents about their experience engaging with development services processes, such as permit application processing, development approvals, inspections and orders, and related investment and business development initiatives, in Greater Sudbury.  

Residents are invited to participate by filling in a survey on between now and November 10, 2023.

Paper copies will be available at Greater Sudbury Public Library locations and upon request by calling 311.

The survey asks residents to provide specific examples of successes and challenges, and to share their constructive and solution-oriented ideas for process streamlining and improvement. 

The committee will also be hearing directly from development professionals during meetings in September and October.

Following the period of consultation and study, the committee will make recommendations to Council in early 2024 to ensure that the City has the capacity and best-in-class policies and processes in place to support anticipated growth in residential and non-residential development.
