Hierarchy of Plans
MGA Section 638 states that all statutory plans adopted by a municipality must be consistent with each other.
The Town of Fox Creek Land Use Bylaw regulates the use and development of land and buildings in the Town of Fox Creek pursuant to Part 17 of the Municipal Government Act. The Intermunicipal Development Plan and Municipal Development plan are Statutory documents that help guide the future of Fox Creek and are taken into consideration when developing the rules and regulations in the Land Use Bylaw.
If a conflict or inconsistency between statutory plans is found:
- An intermunicipal development plan will prevail over a municipal development plan, area structure plan or area redevelopment plan; and
- A municipal development plan will prevail over an area structure plan or area redevelopment plan.
