Zoning is regulated by the Zoning By-Law which is a detailed land use regulatory document identifying specific provisions that may apply to the potential use of land (including buildings and structures). When reviewing development proposals and land use, Council must have regard for Provincial planning policies as well as for compliance with the Official Plan. Council may consider amendments to the Zoning By-Law in accordance with the requirements of the Ontario Planning Act.
