Project - MDP & LUB Review

Cypress County, along with it's consultant, V3 Companies of Canada, is in the process of reviewing and amending the Municipal Development Plan (Bylaw 2015/26 as amended) and the Land Use Bylaw (Bylaw 2018/04 as amended) to make both documents consistent, clearer, and easier to use.
The Municipal Development Plan (commonly referred to as the MDP) is a long-range planning document that establishes the long-term land use policies for growth and development within the County and helps guide Council decision-making on community and infrastructure investments in the future.
The Land Use Bylaw (commonly referred to as the LUB) is a regulatory planning document that establishes the rules and regulations for land use and development as well as the process of making decisions for development permit and subdivision applications within Cypress County, effectively acting as the "rule book” for what can and cannot occur on a parcel of land.
