Bylaw Nos. 1334/21 and 1335/21
The County’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) & Land Use Bylaw (LUB) were adopted in July 2017. Policy MUNI 8.3.2 requires an annual review and report based on the findings of the Monitoring Matrix of the MDP. This review has identified some areas for improvement in the plans, to which amendments are proposed. Staff have also found some housekeeping amendments.
Council gave first reading to Bylaw 1334/21 which proposes a number of amendments to the MDP and Bylaw 1335/21 which proposes a number of amendments to the LUB.
