Lake Cady Water Supply Land Use Bylaw

PART 1:    TITLE, INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE




1.1       This By-law shall be known as the "Lake Cady Water Supply Area Land Use By-law" for the Municipality of Annapolis County, referred to hereinafter as the Municipality, and this By-law shall apply to all the lands within the Lake Cady Water Supply Area, hereinafter referred to as the Planning Area or the Lake Cady Water Supply Planning Area, as defined by the Zoning Maps, Schedules "A" and “B”.




1.2       The Lake Cady Water Supply Area Land Use By-law is adopted in accordance with the Province of Nova Scotia's Municipal Government Act.  The purpose of the Lake Cady Water Supply Area Land Use By-law is to carry out the water supply watershed protection and land use development policies found in the Lake Cady Water Supply Area Municipal Planning Strategy and to establish regulations with respect to the use and development of land.  The Municipal Government Act also enables the Municipality of Annapolis County to adopt a Subdivision By-law to control the division of land.  These three documents provide the framework for water supply watershed protection and land development within the Lake Cady Water Supply Planning Area.




1.3       Regulations and standards that apply to development of or on a property are contained within this By-law as follows:

 

  • the Zoning Maps (Schedule "A" and “B”) to determine in which zone the property is located;
  • the requirements respecting the particular zone in which the property is located (Parts 8 through 11);
  • the general provisions section which applies to all zones (Part 7);
  • the definitions section to determine how specific developments or lot conditions are defined or applied to a development (Part 2);
  • the administration section to define permit requirements (Part 3); and
  • throughout this Land Use By-law there are a number of “Notes to Readers”; these are for information and clarification purposes only, and do not form part of this By-law; and
  • property boundaries, shown on the Zoning Maps (Schedule “A” and “B”); are continuously subject to change due to approvals of applications for subdivision of land and thus property boundary lines shown on the Zoning Maps are included for information and clarification purposes only, and do not form part of this By-law.
