Zoning bylaws govern how development may occur in specified zones of the Regional District. This legal mechanism is used by local governments to promote orderly development and prevent conflict between land uses by dividing an area into “zones” and defining specific “permitted uses” for each zone. Zoning regulations typically include specific requirements for building height, size, setbacks from property lines, density, and minimum lot area, and are contained within a “Zoning Bylaw” that is adopted by a Council or Board of Directors
RDNO Zoning Bylaw Update - The Board of Directors have received the draft Zoning Bylaw 3000 in March 2023 and referred the bylaw to relevant agencies for their review and comment. Staff will bring back the Bylaw to the Electoral Area Advisory Committee once feedback is received.
