The Official Plan
The Development Permit Bylaw
All development that takes place in the Town is required to conform to the Town’s Development Permit By-law. This document controls the use of land in the community by defining how land may be used, where buildings and structures can be located, what types of buildings and structures are permitted and how they can be used. In addition, the Development Permit By-law regulates such things as lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street. The Town is divided into different land use designations, representing residential, commercial, industrial and other land uses. The Development Permit By-law also includes design criteria that is geared towards protecting and enhancing the existing beauty of our town.
