Area Concept Plans - a comprehensive planning framework and generalized future land use concept that guides subsequent development plans

Area Structure Plans - statutory plans that outline development of a small part of a community or neighbourhood

Conceptual Scheme - a non-statutory framework that outlines future development and subdivision concepts within rural areas of the County

Land Use Bylaw - regulates use and development of land 

Subdivision plans - maps of existing subdivisions

School zone designation and development - Includes a map of future school zones

Civic Addressing Bylaw - outlines the requirements for displaying addresses
