Baynes Lake Official Community Plan (OCP) establishes a long range vision for land use change in the community.

The Baynes Lake Official Community Plan and the South Country Zoning Bylaw have been adopted by the RDEK.

“I would like to thank the community for their participation and feedback over the last two years as we worked to develop the plan,” says Electoral Area B Director Heath Slee. “I would also like to acknowledge the many hours of work put in by RDEK staff. These bylaws are comprehensive and complex documents that require a lot of time and effort to prepare, both on the part of the staff and the communities involved. I appreciate the time and energy everyone has invested to see this process to completion.”

The planning process began in September 2009 and the OCP and South Country Zoning Bylaw were formally adopted by the Board Friday.

The OCP establishes a long range vision for land use change in the community and the Zoning Bylaw implements the plan through the regulation of development.
