Bylaws & Policies

All municipalities in Alberta are required to prepare a land use bylaw to allow for the issuance of development permits for the use or development of land.  The Land Use Bylaw establishes rules and regulations for land development and is known as a “rule book” for development within Thorhild County. It regulates how land can be used, what can be built, where it can be built and establishes the process for making decisions on development permit applications.  The LUB aims to balance landowner’s rights with the interests of the community.

Amendments to the Land Use Bylaw 1194-2015

A redistricting (rezoning) is changing the land use district that applies to a parcel of land under the Land Use Bylaw. This changes the kind of uses and development requirements for that parcel of land. A redistricting is required if you want to develop your property in a way that isn't allowed in the current land use district. It requires an amendment application.  Amendments require three readings by Council and a public hearing

Provincial legislation requires all municipalities to adopt a municipal development plan (MDP). An MDP is a long range, statutory document that is required to be adopted by bylaw by every municipality, no matter how large or small the population. The municipal development plan communicates the long term desired land use for a community and serves a high-level blueprint showing how a community is expected to change over time and the shape it will take in the future.

Amendments are required if a landowner wants to deviate from the existing land use concept or policies. MDP amendments requires three readings by Council and a public hearing.
