Property Use & Compliance

Who We Are

The Property Use and Compliance division is responsible for the enforcement of bylaws adopted by Mayor and Council and for the City’s animal control services. Other duties include the issuing and enforcement of business licences, and soil deposit and removal permits. 

What We Do

The Bylaw Enforcement Section initiates investigations and responds to citizen complaints related to bylaw contraventions. Bylaw enforcement endeavors to resolve complaints through education and voluntary compliance wherever possible.

The Delta Community Animal Shelter is responsible for animal control services in Delta. Each year, staff and volunteers provide care, treatment and adoption for hundreds of abandoned, mistreated or surrendered animals.
