- Address of property involved;
- Date and time when the violation was first observed, and any subsequent violations;
- A detailed description of the violation;

Official Community Plan (OCP) & Zoning Bylaw
The Town of Regina Beach intends to adopt a revised Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw No. 10/21 and Zoning Bylaw No. 11/21, which will respectively replace existing Bylaw No. 10/2020 and 11/2005, and all amendments thereto.
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.
All bylaws are passed by Council and are maintained by the Town Office. The latest version of each bylaw is on file and a hard copy can be provided upon request. If you are looking for a bylaw that is not listed, please visit, call or email the Town Office and inquire with staff who are always happy to help you. Please note that there may be a cost associated with a request to print a bylaw.
