Bylaw Compliance

Most bylaw compliance issues are related to land use or building bylaw matters. The Peace River Regional District appreciates all feedback received from residents and take all concerns seriously. In an effort to ensure equality and fairness, we require all complaints to be in writing with a signature and includes your name and address.

When a concern is brought forward, the matter is investigated by staff. All efforts are made to resolve issues before the Regional Board is asked to consider enforcement action. Where an issue cannot be resolved, the Regional Board may seek legal remedies such as court orders.

Bylaw enforcement is complaint-based.

Regional District regulatory bylaws are found on our bylaw page. 

If you observe a situation that you feel is not in keeping with Regional District regulations telephone a staff member to discuss the matter.
