Zoning bylaws are regulations governing land uses that implement the Official Plan’s policies. Each provision and zone within the zoning bylaw contains specific requirements that control the use of land and provide a legally enforceable way of managing land use and future development.
The zoning bylaws control land development and how it’s used; including:
- lot size and dimension requirements
- where buildings and accessory structures may be located
- the types of buildings permitted as well as how they can be used
- building setbacks, heights and density
- landscape and amenity area requirements
- parking and loading requirements
Zoning bylaws are regulated by section 34 of the Ontario Planning Act.
