Land Use Bylaw Update

Project:  Land Use Bylaw Update
Land Use Bylaw: Full Current Document

The Land Use Bylaw (LUB) is being reviewed to provide greater clarity and consistency in an easy to read, updated document that reflects contemporary land use planning and development practices. 

The Town of St. Paul has engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. (ISL) to update the Land Use Bylaw (LUB). The LUB regulates and controls the use and development of land and buildings. It establishes the development authority, development permit approval process, as well as the process for land use redistricting applications. The framework for a LUB is established by the Municipal Government Act (MGA), and all municipalities are required to have one. The current LUB was approved in 2017, and the Town is undertaking a review to respond to changes to the MGA, federal legislation, and provide clarity to existing regulations.

What is a Land Use Bylaw and how does it affect me?
A Land Use Bylaw regulates and controls the use and development of land and buildings. It establishes the development permit approval and appeal process, as well as the process for land use redistricting applications. The framework for a Land Use Bylaw is established by the MGA, and all municipalities are required to have one.

Why is the Town reviewing the Land Use Bylaw?
Since the LUB creates a "rule book" for development, it is very important it is regularly updated to make sure that the rules are reasonable, effective, and reflect new trends in building and site design. 

How can I get involved?
There will be opportunities to gather feedback from landowners to provide input into the Land Use Bylaw update and review the draft documents before they are considered for adoption by Council.  Have your say! Share your thoughts on the process and regulations for development in Town by completing the survey.
