The survey has been completed. You can view the results here:

Follow this link for the Survey #3 Response Summary for detailed survey results.

Thank you to the 540 people who took the time to give us their thoughts on the proposed bylaw regulations for secondary suites, additional dwellings, sea cans, home businesses and gravel pits. Your input is greatly appreciated as we finish drafting the bylaw.

Yellowhead County is currently rewriting and modernizing its Land Use Bylaw (LUB). A LUB regulates how land can be used, what can be built, and where it can be built. Our LUB reflects input from residents and stakeholders and aims to balance landowners’ rights with the broader interests of the community.

Even if the LUB isn’t on your radar today, think about how an unusual land development on a neighbouring lot might affect your property and your family in the future. Don’t miss your chance to have your say!

To date, we have launched a steering committee to oversee the rewrite process and have facilitated two surveys and two focus groups to better understand our residents’ needs. To view the previous survey results report, click here.

After gathering your input, we’ve noted some important topics that need further clarification. A third survey was done to gather further input specific to these items.

Thank you for your participation. A draft rewrite will closely follow this latest questionnaire.
