If you intend to submit a Category C or D application, your proposed project must first undergo a preliminary project review. Applicants may also request a preliminary project review of a Category B project. Preliminary project reviews are not conducted for Category A projects.
Please complete the preliminary project review form on our online portal in order to start the preliminary project review process. Supporting documents may be uploaded to the portal at any time during your application or review process.
We will advise you of the name of the project lead for your preliminary project review. No fees apply for a preliminary project review.
Important note regarding Category C and D projects
All Category C and D projects require a preliminary project review due to the often complex nature of these projects.
During the preliminary project review, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority will provide guidance to the applicant on the required scope of studies, consultation requirements and other documents and information that would be required as part of a complete application.
If you have any questions regarding preliminary project reviews, please contact our planning and development department at 604.665.9047 or by email.
