Land Use Bylaw


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.
