Development Services

Our main function is to regulate the use and development of land and buildings according to the rules and policies of the Land Use Bylaw, the Portable Sign Bylaw, Statutory Plans and the Municipal Government Act.

Land Use Bylaw

The City of Lethbridge’s current Land Use Bylaw became effective September 1, 2020. The Land Use Bylaw sets out the rules for what kind of building or activity can take place on private property and it outlines the process for issuing Development Permits that gives approval for that new building or activity.
