Zoning By-Law

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.
