Zoning Bylaw Amendments

View rezoning applications, bylaws and applicable public notices

In 2023, the Local Government Act as part of the Province’s Homes for People Action Plan was amended to no longer require or prohibit public hearings for specific rezoning applications related to residential applications. For these rezoning applications without public hearings, public notice requirements will continue to apply (including publishing and mailing of rezoning notices) before first reading of the rezoning bylaw. 

Rezoning bylaws and related reports and development plans are available for viewing below. If you wish to provide a written submission, please review the public notices, linked below, for more information.
