In August 2022, the City of Abbotsford completed AgRefresh, a three stage planning process to review and update agricultural policies, bylaws, and regulations, and to establish a framework for improving bylaw compliance for lands within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The AgRefresh project delivered updated Official Community Plan (OCP) policy and Zoning Bylaw regulation, and prepared a bylaw compliance approach for farming areas.

On August 29, 2022, Council adopted OCP Amendments (Bylaw 3247-2022), Zoning Bylaw Amendments (Bylaw 3246-2022), and a new Council Policy for Agricultural Areas. View the updated Zoning Bylaw and OCP.
