Redwater LUB Update
The Town of Redwater is doing a full re-write of the Land Use Bylaw (LUB) to ensure it reflects emerging trends, addresses current community needs, and is in alignment with recent changes to provincial legislation. The Town has retained ISL, a local consultant, to help with this update.
The last major update to the LUB was completed in 2009. Since then, the document has been revised and amended in response to emerging issues.
Town Council and Administration want a full overhaul of the LUB to create a clear and concise document that reflects current community needs and provides Council, Administration, developers, builders, and the public with continued confidence in the development process.
The Town and ISL provided opportunities for stakeholders and the public to participate on the first round of engagement for the LUB update back in January 2023. Feedback gathered during these engagement activities, as well as input from Council and Administration, was used to inform the new draft of the LUB.
The key LUB changes include:
- New document structure and simplified language for added clarity and convenience
- Fewer and more flexible residential land use districts
- More permitted and less discretionary uses
- Regulations for Cannabis Retail were updated
- New Green Energy use including solar, wind, hydro, and biofuels
- More opportunities to build Secondary Suites
- Added clarity on signs regulations
