Zoning Amendments for Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System

Consultation has concluded

This project is now complete and will be archived at the end of August 2019.

To allow for enforcement of development permit areas to be undertaken through the Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System, amendment to the Zoning Bylaw 500 is required.

Regional District of Nanaimo Bylaw Notice Bylaw No. 1786, 2019 was recently adopted to establish the Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System as an alternative to the Municipal Ticket System for the ticketing of bylaw contraventions. The Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System is a simple, fair and cost-effective system for dealing with minor bylaw infractions as an alternative to the court system.

The May, 2019 staff report provides more detail on the proposed changes for the RDN zoning bylaws. Please note that the zoning amendment for Bylaw Zoning 1285 that applies to Electoral Area F is described in the staff report, but is not proceeding, only the amendments to Zoning Bylaw 500 are proceeding.
