Whether your project is big or small, the District of Sparwood is committed to helping you through the land development, building, and/or licensing processes

The Province of British Columbia, through the Local Government Act and Community Charter, guide how the development review process is undertaken and how land uses may be controlled. The District of Sparwood recently completed the Official Community Plan which will guide Sparwood into the future and define our land uses, goals, objectives, and policies on subjects ranging from community and economic development to infrastructure and the environment. The Zoning Bylaw is a companion document that guides land use and development.
