Using Land Well

Urban planning is guided by the Town of Hinton Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and Land Use Bylaw (LUB). The provincially mandated MDP contains the community’s official policies concerning the desired pattern of development and is used as a framework for decision-making. The LUB regulates the development and use of land and buildings by prescribing what can be done within certain zones.
