We're Creating a New Zoning By-Law
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.
The Development Services Department (Planning branch):
- 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.
A common violation of Zoning By-law 2009-141 is front yard (grass) parking. Please log concerns regarding front yard parking with Development Services via Service Barrie at 705-726-4242 or Service.Barrie@barrie.ca.

Zoning By-law 054-04
(Former Town of Innisfil Lands)
Zoning By-law 054-04 remains applicable for some Secondary Plan lands which were transferred to the City in 2009. As part of the current Zoning By-law renewal process, these lands will be incorporated within a comprehensive new City of Barrie Zoning By-law, likely in late 2023 or early 2024.
City Initiated Amendments to Zoning By-law 2009-141
The following City-initiated amendments to Zoning By-law 2009-141 are not yet included in the above office consolidation.
Housekeeping Amendments to the Zoning By-law
Staff regularly consolidate the By-law and report to Council on minor inconsistencies and anomalies that have come to light since the passage of the Comprehensive Zoning By-law 2009-141 approved August 10, 2009.
The Proposed amendments to the text of the By-law relate primarily to points of clarification or interpretation.
The proposed amendments to the Map Schedule result from a variety of causes including road re-alignments, property line adjustments, land assembly severances and mapping errors.
