Land Use Bylaw 698-21

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.
