To get started, gather a few pieces of information. For this page, you will need the dimensions and characteristics of your property. For the next page (aka Step Three) you will need dimensions for all existing or proposed elements on your property: buildings, driveways, gardens, lawns, patios and swales.

If you do not have your lot measurements available, please go to City of Coquitlam’s QtheMap and use the ruler tool or right click on a building to bring up the legal survey plan. Please note there are maximum building footprint areas and setback distances.  Check with the City’s Planning department.

Note: You can create as many projects as you want to play around with different options. Just make sure to save your project(s) before you exit the program so they will be available to play with some more the next time you log on!
