Land-use planning and surveying refers to a wide range of activities that direct the future use of land and manage the current use thereof, in order to ensure the optimal use of land within a political, social, cultural, environmental and economic context.


Land Use Planning Sub-section

This Section is mainly responsible for the processing of applications involving land use changes (by means of rezoning, consent uses, departures, temporary departures, amendment of conditions of approval and removal of restrictive title conditions and technical approvals), as well as farm subdivisions and exempted subdivisions. The section is furthermore responsible for the scrutinizing of building plans for compliance with zoning parameters, as well as attending to illegal land uses.

The most important tools used in land use management are the Zoning Scheme Bylaw and the Bylaw on Municipal Land Use Planning with both being adopted during 2018 as required under the amended planning legislation.
