Land Use Bylaw Review

Project Background


The County of Newell has engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. to undertake a comprehensive review and update of Land Use Bylaw (LUB). The LUB regulates land use and development – organizing a municipality into Land Use Districts and outlining the permitted and discretionary uses within each District.

This comprehensive review and update will ensure the LUB addresses emerging trends in the County, reflects the changing needs of residents and results in a more-user friendly document.



Where Are We Now?

The team has completed best practice research and has begun working through revisions to each section of the LUB with the support of a technical committee of County Planning Commission members and Administration.

Community Engagement

Residents and stakeholders will have key roles in the LUB update process. Your participation and feedback are important to help inform and shape the development regulations. 

Public engagement is anticipated to launch late Spring 2021. At this time, we do not know whether we will be able to offer in-person engagement, as it will depend on the provincial restrictions in place. We are, however, committed to providing a variety of options for residents to learn and participate in the project.
