When is Rezoning Required

In the case where a property owner wants to use his or her land in a manner that is not permitted under the present zoning, a change in the zoning classification through a formal amendment of the Municipality's Zoning Bylaw of the property is required. This process is called rezoning.

A property owner begins by submitting a Rezoning Application to the Manager of Development Services. The process is not completed until the Council has given Fourth Reading to the amending rezoning bylaw, and the bylaw has been registered by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Please contact the Development Services Department to review your project and obtain a Zoning Application at 604.894.6135.
