1. Amendments to the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law 

What are these amendments about?
The Town of Yarmouth’s Planning staff have submitted a report outlining specific amendments to both the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-law (LUB). The purpose of these amendments is to correct errors and omissions within both documents that Planning staff have documented since earlier this year.

How will this affect me?
These amendments will provide both greater context and clarity to certain policies and by-laws within the MPS and LUB. This will be beneficial to both the public and Planning staff when using these documents to permit and regulate development within the Town.

How do I get more information?
More information about these amendments is provided in the Planner’s report. To view this report, please visit:

2. Public Places Bylaw
This hearing addresses a recommendation that council pass amendments to the Public Places Bylaw as recommended by the RCMP Staff Sargent. The changes are housekeeping items that will update definitions within the bylaw to be consistent with the Motor Vehicle Act.
