What is the Land Use Bylaw?

The Land Use Bylaw (LUB) is a statutory planning document that is used in the day-to-day management of development activities within the MD. The purpose of the LUB is to regulate the use and development of land and buildings within the municipality to achieve an orderly and efficient pattern of development.

Why is an Update needed?

The MD’s LUB was adopted by Council in 2010 and requires updating to address new challenges related to development, land use and subdivision. The update provides a great opportunity for public engagement with residents, stakeholders and government agencies; and to reflect current development trends in the MD.
