Redistricting refers to changing the district that applies to a property or parcel of land under the Land Use Bylaw.

The land use districting of a property specifies the:

  • purpose of the land
  • permitted and discretionary uses of the land
  • general regulations (e.g., development setbacks, parcel size, building allowances and other special considerations)

Why Redistrict Land?

You may want to redistrict your land if you want to:

  • develop your land in a way that is not allowed under your current district
  • subdivide your land into parcels used for a different purpose

Alberta's Municipal Government Act requires municipalities to have a Land Use Bylaw. The bylaw specifies the uses and activities permitted on specific lands. The use of a parcel of land may change over time. Landowners who wish to pursue activities on their land that are not permitted under current districting must apply for land use redistricting before subdividing or further developing their land.
