Land Use Bylaw

PDS-MEDIUM-Land Use Bylaw 660x347.jpg


The Land Use Bylaw regulates the use, conservation, and development of land, habitat, buildings, and signs in pursuit of the objectives of Strathcona County's statutory plans. 

These objectives are to maintain and enhance the quality of life by providing opportunities to attain individual and community aspirations; to conserve and enhance the environmental quality in Strathcona County; and to foster planned, efficient, economical and beneficial development that provides a diversity of choice, lifestyle, and environment.

Amendments to the Land Use Bylaw are added on a regular basis.

Strathcona County is reviewing its Land Use Bylaw to address and place land use regulations on licensed cannabis growing, production, distribution and processing facilities, including consumption, to reflect changes in Federal regulations. For more information regarding land use bylaws and cannabis, please see the County's approach to cannabis legalization
