RDNO Zoning Bylaw No. 3000, 2023 was Adopted on February 7, 2024
At the Special Meeting of the Board of Directors held on February 7, 2024, the Regional District of North Okanagan Zoning Bylaw No. 3000, 2023 was Adopted. Zoning Bylaw No. 3000 applies to all Electoral Areas within the Regional District of North Okanagan except the Silver Star area of Electoral Area “C”.
Zoning Bylaw No. 3000 replaces Zoning Bylaw No. 1888 which was Adopted in 2004. Zoning Bylaw No. 3000 has been drafted to ensure that the language in the Bylaw is clear and up-to-date, the format is user-friendly and all sections are consistent with each other. The Bylaw has also been written to reduce the number of commonly supported variance requests and to minimize the creation of non-conforming situations. As such, the Bylaw does not change the zoning designation of any properties, the uses permitted in the existing zones or make the existing regulations associated with the siting, size and dimensions of buildings and structures more restrictive. Additionally, the changes in Zoning Bylaw No. 3000 will allow for increased flexibility related to number and form of dwelling units.
Zoning Bylaw No. 3000 has not been written to address the new Provincial legislation (Bill 44) associated with small scale and multi-unit housing. To address this legislation, amendments to Bylaw No. 3000 will be considered prior to the June 30, 2024 deadline.
