Zoning and other rules for land use and development

Our Official Community Plan (OCP) helps guide development in the District by designating residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and park land uses. It also protects existing neighbourhoods, and focuses new development in town and village centres.

Our zoning and development guidelines and permit requirements further guide growth and development, ensuring it is done in a sensitive and coordinated manner to respond to site conditions and our overall vision for a liveable and sustainable community.
