Zoning By-Law

Zoning By-law

The Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law is a set of regulations that govern land uses that implement the policies set out in the Official Plan. Zoning By-laws dictate what type of development can occur on a property, building setbacks, development restrictions, lot size and dimensions, parking requirements, landscaping and buffering, accessory buildings and much more.

Zoning Amendment

A zoning amendment is a process where a property owner can apply to add or change a use on their land. All zoning amendments must be in conformity with the Official Plan. Zoning Amendments are decided by council, and are subject to a public meeting. Before filling out a zoning amendment application, it is advisable to meet with Township Staff.
