The Zoning Bylaw is a more detailed land use regulatory document identifying specific provisions that may apply to the potential use of land (i.e. including buildings and structures). Council must have regard for Provincial Planning policies as well as for compliance with the Official Plan when reviewing development proposals and land use. Council may consider amendments to the Zoning By-law in accordance with the requirements of the Ontario Planning Act.
Individuals, solicitors, financial institutions and other interested parties may request a written confirmation of a land use, building or structure compliance to Zoning Bylaw and other applicable requirements. Such a request should be directed to the Director of Building, Planning & Enforcement.
