Farm Home Plate

In 2017, Council adopted amendments to the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw, establishing farm home plate regulations (Development Permit Area 9) for the siting of, and area occupied by, new homes on valley floor farmland to minimize the impact of residential uses on farm land and protect farm land in the long term. The farm home plate is defined as the portion of property where all residential and related buildings, structures and activities are located, leaving the balance of the property for agricultural use.
