Public Feedback Requested for Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw

Construction Sign

In early July, I posted about Langley City’s proposed new Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw. This bylaw is important as it outlines:

  • Waste management requirements during construction
  • Standards for lot grading
  • Standards and best engineering practices for storm/rainwater management, water distribution, sanitary sewer system, roadway design, landscaping, trail design, streetlight, traffic signal design, and water meters
  • Road cross-sections that accommodate safer, separated infrastructure for walking and cycling, roundabouts, and high-quality streetscapes
  • Storm sewer management requirements that incorporate the impacts of climate change into its design

For single-family housing zones, which are not subject to council approving development permits as per BC law, this proposed new bylaw, combined with the zoning bylaw, dictates site preparation for redevelopment, density, lot coverage, and siting of buildings on a lot.

Langley City is seeking public feedback on the proposed new Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw.

For more information, please visit Langley City’s website or contact Hirod Gill at by August 27, 2021.
