Zoning Bylaw

The Zoning Bylaw governs land use and the form, siting, height, and density of all development within the District’s boundaries to provide for the orderly development of the community and to avoid conflicts between incompatible uses.

The Zoning Bylaw is a “rule book” that controls land use and development. It regulates exactly how land may be used, where buildings and other structures can be located, the types of buildings that are permitted, lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street. The Zoning Bylaw is a major implementation tool of the Official Community Plan.

The Bylaw divides the District into residential, commercial, agricultural, institutional, industrial and other zones. Each of these zones has its own specific regulations.
