Before beginning the Development Review Process with the City, we strongly encourage you to contact the Planning Consultant in the District of the proposal to receive beneficial preliminary information which could save you time and money as you proceed through the review process. Also, we encourage you to take advantage of the formalized Pre-Application Consultation process to help you prepare your application package. You can also refer to the Toronto Development Guide: Building Toronto Together for requirements as well.

Please select from the listing of application forms relative to your proposal. Note that as an applicant, you grant the City permission to reproduce, in whole or in part, any document submitted as part of a complete application for internal use, inclusion in staff reports or distribution to the public for the purpose of application review. As an applicant you agree to provide a reasonable number of copies of any such document, or parts thereof, in paper and/or electronic form, to the City for internal use and distribution to the public for the purpose of application review.

What’s New

As of December 6, all development applications must be submitted through the City’s new online Application Submission Tool (AST). Resources supporting the Application Submission Tool can be found on the Concept 2 Keys page.

Questions about the AST may be sent to

A Community Planning Application is submitted for proposals that involve Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments, Site Plan Control, Draft Plan of Subdivision, Draft Plan of Condominium, and Part Lot Control Exemptions.

A Complete Submission must include a completed Development Approval Application Form, Project Data Sheet, Planning Checklist or Pre-Application Checklist, appropriate Fee Schedule and payment, all required plans/drawings, reports/studies, and other supporting materials all in hard copy and electronic format (see Planning Checklist or Pre-Application Checklist for submission details).

A Complete Submission will expedite the evaluation of a Complete Application by the City.

Use the Application Submission Tool (AST) to upload your initial development application and supporting materials.

The AST makes it easy to upload application materials digitally, simplifies and improves application circulation and review and facilitates better communication between City staff and applicants. The AST is an easy and secure way to upload applications and allows applicants to check the status of uploaded applications in real time.

At this time, the AST only supports the initial intake of development review application materials. It does not accept payment or resubmission of existing applications. For payment and resubmission materials, please contact Customer Service.

A Rental Housing Demolition and Conversion Application is submitted for proposals involving the demolition, replacement, and/or conversion of rental units. Please complete the Rental Housing Declaration of Use and Screening Form to see if your proposal requires a Rental Housing Demolition and Conversion Application. This application may be required as a companion to any other City Planning Application or Building Permit Application process.

Similar to the submission process, all resubmissions and revisions are to be provided to the Planning Consultant in the District of the proposal.

A Detailed Revision List and Covering Memo is required to be submitted with your Resubmission/Revision package.
