IMSP and Development Regulation Amendments

An amendment to either the Integrated Municipal Sustainability Plan (IMSP) or the Development Regulations involves a change to either specific text or a specific map.  A text amendment may involve changing one work or many sections of the IMSP and/or Development Regulations, with no change to the land use mapping.  An example of a text amendment could involve the addition or removal of a condition for a specific use; i.e adding a condition that addresses reduced setbacks on side yards.  An amendment to the land use zoning maps could involve a change to the boundaries and designation of one, several or all zones.  If a zoning amendment is successful, the land is then capable of supporting all uses, permitted and discretionary, of the new zone. The City uses this webpage as one method of delivery to give notice to the residents of Corner Brook whenever a proposal has been requested to amend the IMSP or the Development Regulations.
