Land Use By-law and Zoning Map

The Land Use By-law (LUB) is the primary companion document to the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS). The LUB is the means by which Town Council will carry out the intent of the MPS for land use and development purposes. This is done through specific municipal regulations and standards, for matters ranging from permitted land uses within each zone, property setback requirements, lot area and frontage requirments, landscaping requirements, sign and fencing requirements, and much more.
