Case from the year 2000
 The Regional District was originally incorporated by Letters
Patent on August 24, 1967 and is now incorporated under the
provisions of the Municipal Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 323.
November 30, 1969 the Regional District assumed
responsibility for, among other things,
community planning and
building regulation from the Central Okanagan Regional Planning
Board (the “Planning Board”) by Supplementary Letters Patent.
 The Department of Highways has at all material times been
responsible for granting approval of the Subdivision.
This is a copy of the BC Gazette - Part II - January 28th, 1960
Local Services Act
B.C. Reg. 21/60
Order In Council No. 1171, Approved June 1, 1959
Council No. 1171, Approved June 1st, 1959
AND TO RECOMMEND THAT pursuant to clauses (a) and (i) of section 3 and section 4
of the "Local Services Act", all those lands lying within the territorial limits
of the Province of British Columbia save and except those portions thereof which
lie within the Corporate Limits of a City, Town, Village or District
Municipality be established as a
local area under the
name of "Provincial Community Planning Local Area"
for the following purposes:
(1) The preparation of community plans by the application of Divisions (1) and
(6) of Part XXI of the "Municipal Act".
(2) The regulation of land use, zoning, subdivision-control and construction of
buildings or structures of any kind by the application of Division (2), (3), (4)
and (5) of Part XXI of the "Municipal Act".
Council No. 2452, October 20th, 1951 - Kelowna Regulated Area
Apparently the Kelowna Law Courts don't have the building code from the 60 to
80's and I was told you have to get those from Vancouver somehow.
|The Resumes are reports of the decisions of the Lieutenant
Governor in Council and Ministers. The Resumes are issued for
informational purposes only.
Orders in Council are official documents implementing Government
decisions concerned with the day-to-day operation of the Province.
The Resumes include the Order in Council identifying number; the
originating Ministry; the name of the Act which provides the
authority for the Order; and a resume of the subject matter.
From time to time, Orders are made by a Minister that do not require
the approval of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
These Orders will be included in the Resumes under a separate
heading entitled “Ministerial Orders.”
A format similiar to Orders in Council will be followed indicating
the number, date, ministry responsible, statutory authority and a
brief resume of the subject matter.
It is hoped that this information regarding Orders in Council will
prove to be of benefit to you and the people of British Columbia.
WikiPedia - Order-In-Council
Canadian Historical Encyclopedia - Order in Council
Order-in-council, at the federal level, is an order of the GOVERNOR
GENERAL by and with the advice and consent of the Queen's PRIVY
COUNCIL for Canada. In fact, it is formulated by CABINET or a
committee of Cabinet and formally approved by the governor general.
Some orders simply make appointments. About a third are legislative,
forming part of the law and enforceable by the courts. Most
legislative orders are made under authority expressly conferred by
ACT of Parliament. With the expansion of state activity in recent
decades (public ownership, state regulation of industry, social
security), it has become impossible for Parliament to legislate
directly and in detail to meet complex and varying problems, and
more and more Acts are cast in general terms and empower the
governor-in-council to make regulations to carry out the intent of
Such regulations on, for example, unemployment insurance, fisheries
and aeronautics, now form an enormous part of our law (see
REGULATORY PROCESS). They are called "subordinate legislation"
because they are made by the governor-in-council, subordinate to
Parliament, and are subordinate to, and limited by, the Act which
authorizes them. A few legislative orders are based on
prerogative (the relatively small remainder of the SOVEREIGN's
ancient lawmaking power) but are limited by the content of the
particular prerogative which confers the power to make them (see
ADMINISTRATIVE LAW). Provincial orders-in-council - orders of the
lieutenant-governor-in-councils - are similar to federal ones.

Historical Review of the Regional District of Central Okanagan
explains Community Planning Area Nos. 1 & 2 Zoning
found on page
The Directors of the Regional Board were to be elected by each
community “Electoral Area” together with appointed representatives
from councils of municipalities. Only the directors of communities
contributing toward the cost of particular services would vote on
matters affecting that service. Several agencies were involved in
the provision of services to the unorganized territories, as
1. Department of Municipal Affairs Provincial Building Inspector
issued permits for the construction of residential and commercial
buildings if the proposals complied with zoning, health, highways,
water rights and any other agency requirements that may be

uses in existing buildings, based on the zoning regulations in
effect over that property.
The Department of Highways
issued access permits to properties fronting
highways under its jurisdiction, but approval of access for

and Development Regulations in effect over any particular property.

regulations governed general use of land (zoning, building
regulations and, in liaison with the Department of Highways and the
Medical Health Officer, subdivision standards)
Okanagan Regional Planning Board acted as the Community Development
and Planning Advisor in an advisory capacity only to:
• The Department of Municipal Affairs in Victoria for all
unorganized territory totalling some 98.7 percent of the total land
area of School District No. 23.
• Municipal Council, City of Kelowna
• Municipal Council, District of Peachland
There were many improvement districts and local utilities within
School District No. 23, who were responsible for domestic and
irrigation water, fire protection and other services. There are
still some improvement districts and private utilities in existence
Regional and Community Planning Letters Patent issued in 1969
Under the authority of
Supplementary Letters Patent dated March 19, 1969 the
Regional District was granted the function of regional and community
planning. It is noted that
Planning Area #1 and part of Community Planning Area #2 established
under the Local Services Act were within the boundaries of the
Regional District and that certain regulations applied
to those areas. These areas encompassed the Lakeview Heights area,
South Pandosy and Rutland community north to Pino Road, all of which
were outside the boundary of the City of Kelowna. In October of
1969, the provincial government passed an order in council to apply
the regulations which were in force and effect in those areas as if
they were bylaws adopted by the Regional Board. These regulations
related to land use within those areas.
September of 1972, the Regional Board expanded the Community
Planning Area #1 provincial regulations to all electoral areas of
the Regional District. Land use regulations were therefore clearly
in place covering all areas of the Regional District;
however, more controls were on the horizon with the provincial
government adopting the Agricultural Land Reserve legislation in
Regional District of Central Okanagan History (page 25)
Initial regulations pertaining to the management of land use and
subdivision established for Community Planning Area No. 1 under
Supplementary Letters Patent, approved by the Provincial Government
Division (3) of Community Planning Area No. 1 Regulations pertaining
to subdivision repealed
1971 and replaced by Subdivision Regulations 262/70 of
the Local Services Act.
Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 66 adopted on
6, 1972 in order to apply zoning regulations to the
Electoral Areas of the Regional District.
