Our Zoning Blueprint: Land Use Bylaw

The Town of Beaumont is Rewriting its Land Use Bylaw (LUB) through a project called Our Zoning Blueprint and invites you to learn about the rewrite and provide feedback.

Let’s Talk Beaumont

Take the Survey!
The Land Use Bylaw governs items such as parking, density, signage and use of land. Have your say with our online survey at letstalkbeaumont.ca OR to ask staff questions about the project or land use matters.

An Environmental Scan Report has been prepared that provides an overview of the regulatory and policy direction in the Municipal Government Act and Municipal Development Plan, provides a summary of best practices for implementation, and identifies recommended land use strategies.

Where can you find us?
We will be out in the community at the following events:

  • May 5 – Communities in Bloom
  • May 16 – Open House held at Crepe n Shake from 5-8 pm

We want to hear from you. Contact us:

What is the Land Use Bylaw (LUB)?

The LUB is a statutory document which provides the Town with a tool to regulate and control the use and development of land and buildings in the community. This Bylaw affects every landowner in the Town of Beaumont.

The LUB divides the municipality into specific districts that dictate what uses are permitted and/or discretionary, contains details on how to make applications for development permits; how and by whom decisions on applications are made; and the conditions that can be attached. The LUB also contains regulations regarding setbacks, landscaping, parking, building heights, and signage to name a few.

How can I learn more and provide feedback?

It is extremely important that we hear from you on any concerns, issues or comments you may have regarding the current regulations or any proposed changes to the LUB. We will be hosting a variety of engagement events during the first half of 2018. Information on these events will be published in the Beaumont News and on the Town’s social media sites. If you would like to be added to our mailing list please contact us at: ourbeaumont@beaumont.ab.ca

Stay tuned for online engagement opportunities!
