OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN (OCP) & ZONING BYLAW

Yay! As per the process, that has been ongoing over the past 8 months, which included multiple rounds of public consultation, the Town of Regina Beach is happy to announce that we have received provincial approval of our New Official Community Plan Bylaw 10/2021 & Zoning Bylaw 11/2021. They are now officially in effect. Thank you to everyone who took the time to review and comment.

Please read the new bylaws for the newly official information that will apply to new developments. Please note the new application fee schedule included in the document is also in effect.

Please be patient as we update our website to reflect the changes. In the very near future this will include improved application forms and information sheets.

The Planning and Development Act, 2007 (PDA) provides council the authority to adopt an official community plan (OCP). Under the legislation, the OCP must be prepared in consultation with a professional community planner as licensed under The Community Planning Profession Act, 2013.The OCP is the keystone of the planning process and is essential in managing future growth and development of our community. The purpose of the OCP is to provide a comprehensive policy framework to guide the physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural development of the Town. The plan is a growth management strategy for the Town and enables us to set development goals, objectives and policies that Council can use to manage land use, subdivision, municipal services and public utilities. An OCP must also incorporate any applicable provincial land use policies.

Without an OCP, the Town would:

  • Have little control over development and would be unable to effectively manage land use;
  • Be unable to coordinate development with services and capital planning;
  • Be unable to manage the separation of incompatible land users (e.g., residences and industrial).

The primary legal and administrative means of implementing an OCP is a Zoning Bylaw. A Zoning Bylaw divides a municipality into zoning districts and regulates the development and use of land in those districts. The purpose of a Zoning Bylaw is to control the use of land for providing for the amenity of the area within Council’s jurisdiction, and for the health, safety and general welfare of the inhabitants of the Town.A Zoning Bylaw permits Council to set standards for the use and subdivision of land, and helps manage the supply of Town services and resources to new development.
