Land Use Bylaw
The purpose of this bylaw is to regulate and control the use and development of land and buildings within the Summer Village of Parkland Beach, and to achieve the orderly and economic development of land.
Development Permit Application
Most development undertaken in the municipality requires an approved Development Permit. Contact the Summer Village office if you have questions about the Land Use Bylaw, or to confirm whether you will need a Permit for your proposed project.
The general Development Permit Application Form is below, along with a Checklist that describes the information, supporting documents, and fees that should accompany your form. To apply for a Home-Based Business (Home Occupation) or Tourist Home permit, please contact the Summer Village office as the forms are unique.
The time frame for processing will vary, but expect at least 4 weeks from application to final approval.
