DETAILS OF THE ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT

The Zoning By-law is the primary implementation tool of the Official Plan authorized by the Planning Act. It is the pre-eminent By-law whose purpose is to regulate land use, as well as the location of buildings and structures.

Some of the proposed changes to the current Zoning By-law include:

• New zoning schedules (mapping);
• Regulations allowing accessory dwelling units within existing dwellings;
• Reduction to the number of parking spaces required for multi-residential uses;
• Several new or modified definitions;
• Zoning of existing mineral aggregate operations licensed under the Aggregate Resources Act.
• The consolidation of zone amendments and mapping changes since the last update in 2003.
