The City of Langley has prepared a new zoning bylaw to replace Zoning Bylaw No. 2100 which was adopted on June 10, 1996. The draft bylaw incorporates a number of changes to format and content intended to modernize the City’s land use regulations to better meet contemporary needs. Significant content changes from existing land use regulations include:
Land Use Contracts – elimination of all land use contracts in the City of Langley in accordance with the “early termination” provisions of the Local Government Act
CD Zones and Bylaw No. 950 Zones – elimination of all existing comprehensive development (CD) zones and Zoning Bylaw No. 950 zones with affected properties rezoned to best fit standard zones
Multifamily Residential Zones – revised provisions for building siting, massing, height, amenity space, balconies, adaptable housing and fee simple rowhouses
Single Family Residential Zones – new or revised provisions for minimum house size, accessory building size, impervious surface area, recreational vehicle parking and corner lot sight triangle
Sustainable Development – new provisions for electric vehicle parking, parking space shading, impervious surface areas, landscaping soil depth
Riparian Area Setbacks – addition of simple assessment setbacks from the Riparian Areas Regulation
New Zones - addition of C4, C5 commercial zones and P3, P4 institutional zones
Zoning Map – revised map reflecting elimination of CD zones and Bylaw No. 950 zones and addition of new commercial and institutional zones
As part of the process, the City of Langley has invited the public to a Draft Zoning Bylaw Public Open House on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The Development Services & Economic Development will be hosting two meetings on the same day to accommodate the public.
The City of Langley adopted "Zoning Bylaw, 1996, No. 2100" on June 10, 1996. The Zoning Bylaw is intended to help implement the goals, objectives and policies of the Official Community Plan through the regulation of land use, development and parking in the City.
