Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw Review
The Town of Drayton Valley has engaged ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. to undertake a comprehensive review and update of the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and Land Use Bylaw (LUB). An MDP is a statutory plan adopted by local bylaw which guides growth and development – providing a framework for more detailed and specific plans, policies and programs. The LUB regulates land use and development – organizing a municipality into Land Use Districts and outlining the permitted and discretionary uses within each District.
The Town’s MDP was adopted in 2012 and the LUB in 2007 and much has changed in the area since then, including annexations in 2011 and 2012. These updates will ensure the documents continue to address emerging trends in the town and reflect the changing needs of the residents.
Over the past few months the Town has been reviewing and revising the LUB to better reflect current trends and best practices. The MDP review has been put on hold to focus on the LUB and it is anticipated that the MDP review and update will resume in 2021.
Residents and stakeholders will have key roles in the MDP and LUB update process. In April 2020, a community survey was used to gather feedback from residents and stakeholders about their priorities and perspectives related to social well-being, the local economy and Drayton Valley’s natural and built environment. In total, 97 survey submissions were received. The feedback shared was used to inform the updates to the LUB.

Please note this is a draft, and the Town is continuing to gather feedback from residents on the draft policies. This feedback will be used to refine the Bylaw before it is presented to Council for First Reading in October.
Date: September 14 to September 28, 2020
