Subdivision Servicing Bylaw Review

The Regional District has initiated a review of it Subdivision Servicing Bylaw No. 2000, 2002, in order to ensure that the bylaw contains up-to-date servicing standards, is current with engineering best practices and is easy to understand.

Under Section 506 of the Local Government Act, a local government, such as the Regional District, may adopt a bylaw to set minimum development standards that will apply to the construction of buildings (at the building permit stage) or the subdivision of land.  This can include, amongst other things, the following:

  • street lighting;
  • underground wiring;
  • water distribution system;
  • fire hydrant system;
  • sewage collection system;
  • sewage disposal system; and
  • drainage collection system or a drainage disposal system.

It is important for the Regional District to prescribe standards, particularly where the Regional District is the operator of infrastructure and is responsible for future maintenance and operation and, therefore, has an interest in how infrastructure is originally built.

The current Subdivision Servicing Bylaw was adopted in 2002 and was last amended in 2010.
