The Land Use Bylaw contains rules and regulations for development on private land. An application to amend the Land Use Bylaw is required if you wish to develop a site in a manner that is not allowed in the current land use district or development regulations. A Land Use Bylaw amendment requires three readings by Council and a public hearing.

Planning and advertising fees are non-refundable regardless if the amendment is approved or denied.
