Local Government Bylaws

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 development of subdivisions in subdivisions by bylaw, including the provision of works and services pursuant to Section 506 of the Local Government Act.  The application will be referred to the Regional District to confirm compliance with their by-laws.
