The planning framework ensures that each level is consistent with the level above and below it and that the policies within each plan may be implemented by the plans below it or the County’s Land Use Bylaw (LUB) during the subdivision and development approval processes.
Plans, Policies, and Implementation Mechanisms
The province’s MGA, ALSA, and Subdivision and Development Regulation, and the County’s eight (8) plans, LUB and Inermunicipal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board Bylaw contain the policies and regulations that help guide planning, subdivision, and development within the County of Northern Lights. A description of and link to these documents are provided below. The County’s documents represent Office Consolidations that incorporate the original document approved by Bylaw, as approved by County Council and all subsequent amendments. These plans are provided for convenience only. In case of uncertainty, the reader is advised to consult the original Bylaws, available at the County Office.
