Christina Lake Zoning Bylaw
Zoning is one of the most important tools that the Regional District uses to implement the land use objectives and policies contained in its Official Community Plans.
Zoning Bylaws achieve this by specifying the permitted uses that may occur within the various parts of our unincorporated Electoral Areas and by regulating the density of development and the size, shape and siting of new buildings and additions that may occur within these zones.
OCP (Official Community Plan)
What The RDKB Planning Department does:
An OCP sets out an area’s long-term strategy for physical, economic, environmental and social development. Each OCP includes policies that reflect community goals and objectives. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary adopts OCPs as formal bylaws. Christina Lake is currently rewriting their OCP Bylaw.
