Zoning By-law

The Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law implements the policies of the Official Plan by regulating and controlling specific land uses. The Zoning By-law divides the Township into a number of zones and sets out the permitted uses of land such as where buildings and structures can be located and requirements such as lot coverage and setbacks. Through Zoning, the Township can guide and shape the pattern of development that occurs.

Any ratepayer who wishes to use his/her property or develop it in a way that is not permitted by the regulations of the Zoning By-law would need to apply to the Township for an amendment to the Zoning By-law.  Council will only consider a Zoning By-law amendment if the proposed use is allowed by the Township’s Official Plan. If the proposed use was not allowed in the Official Plan the land owner would need to apply for an Official Plan Amendment as well.  To apply, please fill out the Zoning By-law Amendment Application and contact the Township’s Planner.
