An Official Community Plan (OCP) describes the long-range objectives through guidelines for growth and development of the municipality over a multiple decade span.
The Rural Munipality of Wilton has 2 separate Official Community Plans, one for the Lloydmisnter Planning District, and one for the portion of the municipality outside of the Lloydminster Planning District.
Wilton's Zoning Bylaws regulate land use and buildings. The Zoning Bylaw is the main tool used to guide development to meet the long term goals established in the Official Community Plan. This is done through detailed regulations on land use and development standards.
The Rural Munipality of Wilton has two (2) separate Zoning Bylaws (one for each Official Community Plan).
Depending on the details of your subdivision and/or development a bylaw amendment may be required. The most common bylaw amendment is a rezone.

2. A copy of title of the title of the affected property dated no more than 30 day prior to the date that the application is received by the municipality. Titles are available from Information Services Corporation (ISC).
3. An explanation of what your proposal is, what specific bylaw you are requesting amended, and why a bylaw amendment is necessary for your development plans.
4. Payment for the bylaw amendment application as per the Planning and Development Fee Bylaw.
5. For complex developments a Comprehensive Development Application may be required at the discretion of the municipality. for more information please contact the Development Services Department.
