Preliminary Project Assessment (PPA)

The Preliminary Project Assessment (PPA) is a preliminary process that evaluates moderate to large projects before development applications are filed. This early review of the project provides sponsors with feedback and procedural instructions, and also allows staff to coordinate at the beginning in the development process. The PPA application is not a development application, and issuance of a PPA letter is not a development approval or denial. For any project that requires a PPA, no development application, including for Environmental Evaluation (EE) will be accepted until after the PPA letter has been issued.
