Planning & Development

Sound guidelines for sustainable growth

The MD's Planning & Development team governs sensible, sustainable growth that protects the interests of Lesser Slave River communities, and that complies with the Municipal Government Act.

Here you'll find guidance and documentation for planning and development activities across the MD; and regulation that strikes a balance between land preservation and progressive growth.

Land Use Bylaw Update

Brand new
LAND USE BYLAW

Council passed an updated Land Use Bylaw in September of 2021. This new guiding document is an entire rewrite of the legacy bylaw introduced in 2004, and was crafted in parallel with extensive community engagement and Council input.

LAND USE BYLAW

Balancing Environment, Aesthetics, Equity and Efficiency

We examine issues of compatibility, environment, health, aesthetics, equity and efficiency in land use planning and development. It helps ensure the ongoing conservation of the region’s natural environment and cultural heritage while heavily promoting healthy, sustainable communities.

The MD's planning process ensures quality development, which in turn:

  • Protects your investment

  • Maintains peace among neighbours

  • Fosters community pride

  • Provides land use certainty

  • Guides standards of construction
