Land Use Bylaw‎ > ‎

Introduction

HOW TO USE THIS BYLAW

The Village of Hythe Land Use Bylaws establishes the regulations which govern how land and buildings can be developed in our Village. The regulations vary depending on where the land is located and what kind of development is proposed.

If you are not sure you understand the regulations, or if you would like someone to guide you through the process, simply call or visit the Village's Planning & Development Department. The telephone number is (780) 356-3888.

Step 1

Locate the property in question on the Land Use Map in Residential or Commercial.


The map divides the Village into Land Use Districts. Each District has a land use designation such as "R-1" (Low Density Residential), etc.  Note which Land Use District the property is located in.

Step 2

Check the Table of Contents and find the District that you are interested in. In each District you will find a list of permitted and discretionary uses, development standards and other regulations.

Step 3

Review the Table of Contents to see if there are any general regulations which may apply to your project. For example, Part 3 General Regulations deals with such items as accessory buildings and uses, parking and loading, landscaping etc. It also includes regulations for home occupations, vehicular uses, bed and breakfasts, signs, and other uses and topics.

Step 4

Discuss your project with the Planning & Development Department. They can assist you with your application and explain the process, whether you are applying for a development permit, subdivision, or Land Use Bylaw amendment.

We hope this "how to" guide has been useful. Again, if you need help, please ask!
