Residential Development

All proposed development must have the Development Permit Application approved PRIOR to the Building Application being reviewed.  Development/Construction CANNOT begin until the Building Application has been approved and a Building Permit has been issued.

Development Permit Application

The time frame for receiving a permit decision will vary depending on the amount and complexity of technical information required to assess a development. As such, it is recommended a development permit application be submitted well in advance of the project start date. The development officer of a municipality reviews proposals in the context of the bylaw. A proposal may be classified in the local zoning bylaw as:

  1. Permitted Use Where a development proposal is identified by the municipal zoning bylaw as a permitted use, the development officer for the municipality may be able to issue the permit provided all information and relevant forms are completed and attached.
  2. Discretionary Use Where a development proposal is identified by the municipal zoning bylaw as a discretionary use, the application must be advertised pursuant to section 55 of the PDA and presented to the council by the development officer at its next council meeting for review and decision. It is important to coordinate presentations with municipal council meetings and developers should be invited to present information and answer question on their application.
  3. Prohibited (Neither Permitted nor Discretionary) Where a development proposal is not identified in the municipal zoning bylaw as a permitted or a discretionary use, the development is prohibited. In such a case, the proponent may apply to council for a zoning bylaw amendment. The proposed development is then presented to council for review and decision following an approved amendment to the zoning bylaw.

The Town of Regina Beach Council has been working on a new Zoning Bylaw. The bylaw was approved by Council and is now with the Province for final approval, it will likely become officially in effect very soon. Please review the zoning bylaw  in regard to your proposed development.
