Rezoning and Official Community Plan Applications

Applications to amend the Official Community Plan Bylaw and Zoning Bylaw are considered by the Council at a public meeting. A bylaw is initially considered for first and second reading. Council is then required to schedule a public hearing for which notice is given in local newspapers. Typically, notice of a public hearing is delivered to owners of property within 75 m of the subject property. At the conclusion of a public hearing, the Council may consider third reading and adoption of the bylaw without further notice or hearing. For more information please see part 14 of the Local Government Act.

  • no applications under consideration at this time

Subdivision Applications

Applications for subdivision are received by the Village Approving Officer, who acts independently of the Council. The Approving Officer will consider the application under the governing Provincial legislation and Village bylaws. Lot line adjustments are considered subdivisions.
