Direct Control Districts

There is a specific, unique set of uses and rules for each of Calgary's Direct Control (DC) Districts. Each DC has its own bylaw number (or, prior to 1980, a resolution number) identifying applicable uses and rules for each district.

For example, DC 16Z1997 is the 16th Direct Control created in 1997. To find it, click ‘1990s Direct Control Districts’, click ‘1997 Direct Control Districts’, and then search for the document titled 16Z1997. The .pdf file includes district-specific details and may reference either the current Land Use Bylaw 1pP2007, or historical land use bylaws, such as Land Use Bylaw 2p80.

For historical land use bylaws, contact the City Clerk's Office for the version from the specific year that direct co​ntrol was approved (e.g. 1997).
