Project Background

A Zoning Bylaw is a document that regulates how land, buildings and other structures can be used. The current Zoning Bylaw No. 8000 was adopted in 1998 and has been amended over the years to respond to changes and new community initiatives.

The proposed updates in the draft Zoning Bylaw are intended to align with Imagine Kelowna and the City’s 2040 OCP, meet current Provincial legislative requirements, and respond to current development and real estate trends. The updates also consider the recommendations contained within several Council-approved planning initiatives and projects including: the City's Healthy Housing Strategy, Capri-Landmark Urban Centre Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Agriculture Plan, Climate Action Plan, and Urban Centre Roadmap, as well as recent changes to the BC Building Code.
