What is the Land Use Bylaw?

The Land Use Bylaw is a document which divides the town into districts (zones), prescribes land uses that are permitted or discretionary in each zone and provides rules for what, where and how development can occur. 

Essentially, the Land Use Bylaw controls and regulates what can and cannot occur on a parcel of land and how buildings can be placed and constructed on that parcel. It is one of Cochrane’s most important documents and has far-reaching implications for how the community is shaped.
