Planning & Community Development Department Performance Metric Goals
Goals and metrics are derived from the Dumfries Annual Fiscal Plan. To deliver the best experience, the Planning and Community Development Department aims to review permit applications and provide feedback within 14 days. 
  • Our first measure tracks the average review time (all permits) in days for the month, always a month behind. 
  • We recognize some permits will require extra time and attention. The second measure tracks the review time for land use permits when applicable. 
  • The third measure combines zoning and inter-agency permit review times.
Note: Occasionally measures will report 'not enough data for current reporting period' signifies no permits of this type were accepted for the month.  
Below you can track the agency permit intake volume. You will also find the total number of permits broken down by permit type.
This graph visualizes the permits accepted per month. You can view the type of permit on the top right corner. You can also hover over the bar chart to see the date and number of permits.
