EHS Survey Hours of Operation

The TNRD is seeking input to determine the best days of the week and time of day that some of our waste-management facilities should operate. This comes on the heels of a review of all waste-management facilities and the hours per week they are open. Just click the appropriate link below for your community. Once operating days and times of the day are determined, changes will be rolled out through the summer and fall with all hours to be implemented by October 1, 2015.

Building Information Request

The Building Information Request (BIR) process is intended to provide information on the status of a property relating to building permit history. When records are available, the BIR will indicate whether building permits have been issued and if inspections have been carried out. It will also identify if a particular project has received an occupancy certificate, or if any building violations are outstanding. Read more about Building Information Request

Zoning Bylaw


The principal tool local government uses to regulate land use is a zoning bylaw. In the TNRD we have one bylaw, Zoning Bylaw No. 2400, that applies to the entirety of the regional district electoral areas. See link below to get to the Zoning bylaw and the one page FAQ that explains how to determine your property zoning.
