On June 30, 2021, a wildfire destroyed approximately over 100 properties within the Village of Lytton. More than 1,000 residents evacuated from the area.

Land Use

The Zoning and Building Bylaws state the requirements that must be met to be able to build a home or other building or structure. The first step is to determine which zone your property is in. 

Building Permits

A building permit is required before the start of any construction or renovation within the Village.
