Residential Uses in the ALR
The Minister of Agriculture has established a Minister's Bylaw Standard to guide local government bylaw development regulating the siting and size of residential uses in the ALR.
The "September 2011 Discussion Paper and Minister's Bylaw Standard" is provided here to explain the rationale for establishing this Minister's Bylaw Standard. The September 2011 document incorporates the feedback received on the January 2011 discussion paper and further analysis by Ministry staff.
The definitions and bylaw criteria are in Part 4 of the document and will be incorporated into the Ministry's Guide for Bylaw Development in Farming Areas.
