The Land Use Bylaw is a document that regulates land use and guides development.
- Divides the Town into different land use districts and determines the built form and activities that occur in each land use district.
- Needs to be in conformance with the Town’s statutory plans.
What is redistricting (Rezoning)?
A redistricting (rezoning) is changing the land use district that applies to a parcel of land under the Land Use Bylaw. This changes the kind of uses and development requirements for that parcel of land. A redistricting is required if you want to develop your property in a way that is not allowed in the current land use district.
How to apply?
The first step is by setting up a pre-application meeting with the Development Officer to discuss your proposal. A review will be discussed to see how your proposal might align with the Town’s approved planning documents. To book a meeting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by email or by phone at 780-486-1991 ext. 222 or the Town Office (Tuesdays) 780-942-3519 ext. 270.
Rezoning fees are $1000 PLUS all 3rd party expenses as per the Fees and Charges Policy.
Who approves an application
A Land Use Bylaw amendment or redistricting is a document that requires council approval. An open house to the public may be required prior to the applicant presenting council with the application at a public hearing. Following the public hearing multiple council meetings are required before final approval is granted.
