Zoning Bylaws

Zoning Bylaws are authorized under the Local Government Act (Division 7) to enable regional districts to regulate land use and implement the objectives of an Official Community Plan.

As a regulatory tool, Zoning Bylaws specify permitted uses for different areas of the community and assign specific regulations to these areas to guide development. For example, Zoning Bylaws include regulations with regard to density as well as the siting and sizing of buildings.

Property owners seeking to develop or redevelop their property should consult the Zoning Bylaw to determine the permitted regulations for their zone.

Land-Use Bylaws

Land-Use Bylaws are a blend of Official Community Plans and Zoning Bylaws. This format is historic and no longer permitted. Long-range planning staff are working to replace the Land Use Bylaws with separate Official Community Plans and Zoning Bylaws for each area.
