Update: The What We Heard Report will be available in September 2023.

We are seeking public input to influence changes to the Land Use Bylaw. This project is all about reducing red tape, increasing flexibility and increasing understanding of the bylaw. We want to know what you love about your neighbourhood, what aspects would you like changed, what makes a City livable, and what have you seen elsewhere that you’d like Red Deer to consider?

What is a Land Use Bylaw?

Every municipality in Alberta is required to have a Land Use Bylaw as per the requirements in the Municipal Government Act. The Land Use Bylaw establishes rules and regulations for land development as well as the process of making decisions for development permit applications within the City of Red Deer.


Thanks to all who attended our in person sessions on Wednesday, June 7 and Thursday, June 8 and provided your feedback online. We are currently reviewing all input received so far and will provide a What we Heard Report in September 2023, and next steps to get involved.
