The Planning Department is responsible for managing land use and the associated regulation that governs land use. The Department also considers long term policy issues that are shaped by land use and growth, such as affordable housing, preservation of green space and transportation.
The Zoning Bylaw is the primary bylaw that regulates land use, it provides direction on what type of use can be done on a property, the density of development, and where and what size buildings can be built.
The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the long term vision for how the Village will develop and accommodate future growth.
For municipal planning related questions please contact the Manager of Development Services.
