Zoning Bylaw Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD) has drafted proposed updates to the Zoning Bylaw (ZB) for the entire Regional District, and for each Electoral Area (EA) Official Community Plan (OCP). This will aim to better align zoning regulations with policies in the OCPs, incorporate current legislation (ie. BC Building Code, Federal and Provincial legislation), to improve clarity, and address current planning issues.

The current ACRD Zoning Bylaw No. 15 (PDF) was adopted in 1973 and has since been amended numerous times. As of June 2021, an updated draft Zoning Bylaw (PDF) is available for review to receive public input on the proposed updates.

Thank you to those who completed the Zoning Bylaw Review survey to have your say on the proposed updated regulation.

Visit the Zoning Bylaw Review project page (www.acrd.bc.ca/zbreview) for additional information, including zoning maps, Official Community Plan (OCP) updates and maps, and next steps with the review process.
