The Summer Village and Municipal Planning Services have been working to update the Summer Village’s Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw – two documents which regulate land use and development within the Summer Village. Here is what has been completed:
An important part of this project is public engagement and feedback! Phase 1 of the public engagement is complete, the survey completed in the Fall of 2022 had a high response rate, and 46 residents provided feedback to our survey! Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey. Results of the survey have been posted on the Summer Village’s website.
In addition, a Biophysical Assessment, prepared by CPP Environmental Report to evaluate the physical health of the shoreline of Skeleton Lake adjacent to the Summer Village. The complete Biophysical Assessment has been posted on the Summer Village’s website.
MPS has prepared a first draft of the Municipal Development Plan, which has been reviewed by Council. MPS is currently making revisions to the draft MDP based on the feedback and direction from Council and then will begin work on the Land Use Bylaw.
Stay tuned for information about the next phase of the engagement process which will include an open house to share the draft Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw with the community, stakeholders, and agencies and seek feedback.
The Intermunicipal Collaboration Framework is a list of agreements with neighboring communities as well as a plan to deal with any issues that may arise.

All Municipalities are required to enact a Land Use Bylaw providing for land use zoning. This essentially classifies the type of development allowed on a parcel of land and contains rules for setback distances from property boundaries, total percentage of lot area covered by buildings, maximum height of buildings and other matters relative to development. Please consult the Summer Village of Bondiss Land Use Bylaw for details.
Any inquiries or requests for information regarding Development Permits, including appeals may be obtained by email from the Summer Village Development Authority.
