Adopted in 2003 and updated in early 2014 the Conway Area Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law regulates development in the Conway area. The Strategy and By-law identify residential and commercially zoned area and promote responsible and efficient development through various land use control regulations. Minimum lot area, lot frontage, building setback and land use controls have been put in place. Regulations also include signage control and a variety of provisions for matters such as accessory buildings and on-site parking requirements. A Municipal Development Permit is required for all development within the plan area.
