Regional Districts

The Local Government Act gives Regional Districts the authority to enact subdivision servicing and zoning bylaws.  Section 87 of the Land Title Act authorizes the Approving Officer to refuse a subdivision if it does not conform to these bylaws. A local government may regulate the provision of works and services in subdivisions by bylaw, including standards for highways pursuant to Section 506 of the Local Government Act.
