[ARCHIVED] Planning for the Next Decade - Nanton Land Use Bylaw

Nanton Land Use Bylaw

What is a Land Use Bylaw?

A Land Use Bylaw (LUB) is a required document, as per Municipal Government Act (MGA), that sets out regulations for acceptable land uses within a municipality.

 

The purpose of the Town’s LUB is to:

  • Organize the municipality into land use districts (ex. commercial, residential etc.)
  • Determine suitable uses in a given District
  • Establish a development permit and rezoning process
  • Establish standards for the acceptable height, and size of buildings
  • Outline development standards for parking, signage, landscaping etc.

 

Land Use Bylaw Update

The Town of Nanton is working with ISL Engineering and Land Services (ISL) to undertake a comprehensive review and update of the Town’s Land Use Bylaw.

 

Why is the LUB being updated?

The current LUB was adopted in 2013, and an update is needed to improve the clarity and usability of the document, consider new land development trends, align with current policy documents, and better reflect community needs to support the growth and development of the municipality.

 

You can learn about and review the current bylaw here: www.nanton.ca/158/Land-Use-Bylaw

 

The Town and consultant team will be updating the LUB by completing the following steps:

  • Reviewing the content and structure of the current LUB
  • Conducting best practices research to learn from other similar municipalities in Alberta
  • Gathering community feedback on what should be considered in the new LUB update
  • Developing a draft LUB and gathering additional community feedback on the draft LUB
  • Refining the draft LUB based on community and stakeholder feedback
  • Presenting the updated LUB to Council for consideration and adoption

Project Timeline:

The project began in January 2022 and is expected to be completed by early December 2023.
