Community Engagement

Public Engagement on the Land Use Bylaw (LUB) Update

The County’s LUB has been recently updated after a year and half of public engagement and consultation, and contains significant changes from the previous LUB.  The new LUB (linked below) is the overall regulation and guide for developing lands contained within the County boundaries. All uses, subdivisions, and development procedures and regulations are defined by land use districts for certain areas within the County.  It is to provide sound and orderly development within the guidelines as developed and authorized by County Council and the Municipal Development Plan. Anyone wishing to purchase or develop land within the County is encouraged to become familiar with the regulations contained within.  The County prides itself on being an open and accessible development environment, thereby enabling our residents and farming communities to prosper and enjoy rural living.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an MDP?
The Municipal Development Plan is a guide that provides future direction on development matters for the entire municipality. Ideally, the plan is created with end-users in mind; landowners, ratepayers, community groups etc. These are the people who will live and work here, and it is their vision of how development should proceed that a carefully prepared plan should consider.

What does a Land Use Bylaw mean to me?
Planning decisions made by the County are based on regulations contained within the Land Use Bylaw. Zoning designations, land uses and enforcement rules are established within the Land Use Bylaw, all of which impact local landowners and potential developers.
