A Zoning By-law controls the use of land in your community, such as:

  • How land may be used
  • Where buildings and other structures can be located
  • The types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used
  • The lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street.

If a proposed use is not permitted in a zone or if it does not meet the regulations of that zone, a Zoning By-law amendment or Committee of Adjustment Application must be made.

Please see information on Zoning Clearance Certificates.

IMPORTANT: Zoning Clearance Certificates must be approved before applying for a building permit and/or a pool permit.

If the zoning on your property is within the area of the Niagara Escarpment Commission (NEC), please contact the NEC for zoning information at 905-877-5191.
