When a proposed development differs from the current land use and density set out in the Town of Comox (Zoning Bylaw 1850), it must go through the rezoning process. If the proposed development also differs from the future land use proposed in the Comox Official Community Plan Bylaw, 2011(PDF) it will also require an Official Community Plan Amendment.
