Share Your Feedback


The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is updating its Land Use and Subdivision Bylaw No. 500, 1987 (Bylaw 500). Bylaw 500 is a planning document that regulates the use of land, buildings and structures in RDN Electoral Areas A, C, E, G and H. The RDN Board gave draft Zoning Bylaw 2500 first reading at its January 9, 2024, meeting and endorsed an engagement plan to seek public input on the draft bylaw.

Share your Feedback

Residents are invited to review and provide feedback on the updated draft zoning bylaw via an online survey and through six upcoming open houses. The feedback collected will be used to recommend changes to the draft zoning bylaw prior to presenting it to the RDN Board for second reading.

Online Survey
