Bylaws/ Policies

Land Use Bylaw

The Land Use Bylaw is the regulatory document that implements the policy direction set forth in a municipality's Municipal Development Plan. It is the document which regulates and controls the use and development of land and buildings in the community. Based on the planning hierarchy, the municipality divides into specific districts that dictate what uses are permitted and/or discretionary, contains details on how to make applications for development permits; how and by whom decisions on applications are made; and the conditions that can be attached. The Land Use Bylaw also contains regulations regarding setbacks, landscaping, parking, building heights, and signage to name a few.
