2015 Releases 

Municipal Planning Strategy – Draft for Public Consultation

The draft Municipal Planning Strategy has been removed from the Kings 2050 website to allow Staff and Council the opportunity to revise, edit and update this document. These revisions will be informed in part by the input received from members of the public during the consultation period, over the past year. This feedback is summarized in the new report available here: Kings 2050 Results of Broad Based Consultation report.

Land Use By-law – Summary of Draft Changes

The Land Use By-law is the document that puts the Municipal Planning Strategy into action. It includes the detailed rules and regulations and applies zoning to determine what kinds of development can be built in different places, and what those developments can look like (how tall, where on the lot they can be located, etc.).

The full text of the proposed Land Use By-law will not be released until later in 2015, pending detailed public consultation on the proposed direction. However, below you will find a summary document that outlines the purpose of each proposed zone, and highlights some of the major changes proposed for each zone.

The ‘Draft for Consultation’ Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law are—just as the names imply—drafts intended as a starting point for more detailed public consultation and Municipality of Kings Council discussions.
