The range of land use planning services provided includes zoning bylaw review and implementation, preparation and review of Official Community and Local Area Plans, working with volunteer Advisory Planning Commissions, processing development applications and providing daily counter and telephone inquiry service to the public.

 

Zoning

Zoning is a way of regulating land use by assigning parcels of land to categories that include a specific range of permitted uses and densities, as well as lot size and siting regulations.
