Please consult the Summer Village of South Baptiste Land Use Bylaw for details. This bylaw contains the rules and regulations for the development of land in the Summer Village.
Any inquiries or requests for information regarding Development Permits, including appeals may be obtained by email from the Summer Village Development Authority.
