Zoning By-Laws provide day-to-day administration of the contents of the Official Plan. They contain specific requirements that are legally enforceable and control the use of land. Zoning By-Laws state exactly:
- how land may be used;
- where buildings and other structures can be located;
- the types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used; and
- the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street.
Current Zoning By-Law
You will need to comply with zoning prior to obtaining a building permit. If your project does not comply with the current zoning of your property, you can apply for a rezoning. Please visit the Planning webpage here for more details. Building permits will not be issued for construction or development that does not comply with Prince Edward County’s Zoning By-Laws.
