Below is a brief description and application information on development applications.
A variance seeks approval to deviate from the requirements set out in the zoning by-law. This type of application can address nonconforming building setbacks, lot sizes, size of accessory structures, parking requirements, etc.
A conditional use refers to a type of land use that may be more appropriate in certain areas of the Municipality due to the size or nature of the use. Permitted or conditional uses are established according to each zone (residential, agricultural, commercial, etc).
A subdivision is the division of a parcel of land (described on a single title) into two or more parts. The rearranging of property boundaries (if there are two or more titles) can also be considered a subdivision. The Municipality has created the RM of St. Andrews Subdivision Guidebook
to assist property owners who are going through the subdivision process for the first time.
A rezoning is a proposal to make a change to the Zoning By-law, either the requirements for new development, or a change to a property’s land use (e.g. from agriculture to residential).
Development Plan Amendment
A development plan amendment is a proposal to make a change to the Development Plan, either to the policies for new development, or to the type and location for future development (e.g. from agriculture to residential).
