Planning and Development Services

Planning and Development Services pertains to the development of long-range plans, policies and regulations that support the environmental, social and economic goals of the community. Staff works with the community and Council to develop long-range plans, policies and regulations that support the Official Community Plan (OCP) through these aspects of development.

In 2017, Council adopted a new Zoning Bylaw which provides a cohesive regulatory framework for land use throughout the Village of Lions Bay. This includes regulation of Short-Term Rentals (STRs) through Temporary Use Permits (TUPs), adding a cottage to one's property, and support for subdivision of land.
