We invite your input for an update to the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and the Land Use Bylaw (LUB).

The Municipal Development Plan communicates the long-term desired land use for the County and serves as a framework of how it is expected to change over time and shape its future.

The Land Use Bylaw regulates the use and development of land and buildings within Yellowhead County to achieve an orderly and efficient pattern of development.

DRAFT Municipal Development Plan Bylaw 03.24

The plan for all of Yellowhead County is known as the Municipal Development Plan. The MDP sets our social, economic and environmental goals via specific policies. The MDP was adopted by Yellowhead County Council in 2013 and will soon be revised and renewed.

DRAFT Land Use Bylaw 02.24

Land use in Yellowhead County is controlled by assigning each parcel of land to a specific Land Use District. There are currently 9 land use districts. Each district has a list of Land Uses that are allowed or not allowed such as home-based businesses or commercial buildings. The Land Use Bylaw (LUB) also regulates the size, height and placement of buildings on land. It also sets out the rules for subdividing land, applying for a development permit or applying to change a land use district.
