A Zoning By-law is a regulatory document that implements the policy direction outlined in the Official Plan. The Comprehensive Zoning By-law (2009-141) was approved by City Council in August 2009.
Using a series of land use zones and corresponding text, a Zoning By-law spells out how land and buildings may be used, where buildings and other structures may be located, and what constraints may be applicable to the development of a particular property (i.e. parking requirements, lot coverage, density, etc.). The Planning Services department:
- confirms compliance for all permit applications, business licensing, two-unit house registrations and site plan applications.
- provides zoning information as requested for property transactions, development applications and general enquiries.
- responds to complaints and enforces compliance as necessary.
Re-zoning of land and/or significant site specific changes to land uses or zone regulations require a Zoning By-law Amendment (ZBA), and possibly an Official Plan Amendment (see Development Services).
