Land Use Bylaw Review

The County of Wetaskiwin is excited to announce the start of a significant project to modernize and enhance its Land Use Bylaw. This comprehensive review and update are crucial steps towards ensuring a more efficient, sustainable, and vibrant future for our community. The current Bylaw, while effective in its time, requires updating to align with changing demands, address emerging trends, and foster responsible growth and development in our community.

The Land Use Bylaw Review and Update Project will involve an extensive collaboration between the County of Wetaskiwin, local stakeholders, industry experts, and the community at large. This process will encourage input from a diverse range of perspectives to ensure that the new Bylaw reflects the aspirations and priorities of the people it serves.

The Land Use Bylaw is the “rule book” for managing development in the County. The regulations in the LUB aim to address the potential impacts created by land uses and development, and establish the forms of development that can occur in the future, providing certainty to those who live, work and enjoy the County. 

Land Use Bylaws have many benefits:

  • Manages potential impacts between land uses, the community, and the environment. 
  • Provides certainty to the County of what type of uses and form of development is expected to occur. 
  • Provides certainty to landowners/ developers on the types of uses and developments both they and their neighbours can and cannot have.
