Thorhild County Land Use Bylaw Rewrite

Thorhild County is undertaking a comprehensive update of the Land Use Bylaw.

All municipalities in Alberta are required to prepare a Land Use Bylaw (LUB) to allow for the issuance of development permits for the use or development of land.  The LUB 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.

After a comprehensive review and engagement opportunities, the Land Use Bylaw rewrite is now in its final phase of redevelopment. The LUB will be presented to Council in November 2022 for consideration of the First Reading of the bylaw. Once the LUB receives First Reading, a public hearing will be scheduled and further changes may be made to the Bylaw before the LUB receives the Third and Final Reading.
