Zoning is a means of dividing land into areas designated for different land uses and densities including the dimensions, siting and size of buildings and structures. Zoning regulates the shape, dimensions and area including the establishment of minimum and maximum sizes of parcels of land that may be created by subdivision.
Zoning provisions are compiled in a zoning bylaw which includes regulations applicable to each zone. Different areas may be subject to different zoning bylaws. Residents can apply to amend a Zoning Bylaw in different ways depending on the size or nature of the desired change (e.g. Re-Zoning, Board of Variance or Development Variance Permit). North Coast Regional District (NCRD) staff are available to answer your questions and assist you in interpreting the zoning bylaw.
