As a resident or landowner, changes to the Land Use Bylaw could affect you in a number of different ways. Every property in Sturgeon County is in an assigned district and there will be modifications to each district. However, some changes are relatively minor and residents will not even be aware of them. Examples can include:
- Renaming the district
- New processes to reflect Provincial Building Code
- Greater or fewer land uses in the District
- Changes to the minimum and maximum size of accessory buildings
Major changes to the LUB will reflect the findings within the Research and Recommendation Report, and will be highlighted and shared when the draft document is complete, in the Establish Phase. Sturgeon County is aware that balance is essential to developing a Land Use Bylaw that reflects today’s needs (including changes in Provincial regulation), while not causing significant disruption to how residents live and use their lands.
