Current Zoning By-law #15-04

Section 34 of the Planning Act gives the Township the authority to implement land use controls through Zoning By-Laws. A Zoning By-Law is used to implement the policies in the Official Plan. As a legal By-law document that is adopted by Council, a Zoning By-Law divides lands in the Township into specific areas or “zones” that are shown in the maps below.

How to Apply for a Zoning By-law/Official Plan Amendment

If you want to use or develop your property in a way that is not permitted in the Township Zoning By-law, you may apply for a Zoning By-law Amendment. Council will consider the Application after receiving comments from various agencies, the Community Planner from the County of Frontenac and the Committee of Adjustments.

An Official Plan amendment is a formal document that changes the Township’s Official Plan. Changes may be needed because of new circumstances in the community or requests made by property owners. If you want to use or develop your property in a way that conflicts with the Township’s Official Plan, an amendment to the plan would be required. Council will consider the Application after receiving comments from various agencies, the Community Planner from the County of Frontenac and the Committee of Adjustments.
