All lands within the Township are subject to the Zoning By-law. The Zoning By-law regulates the use of land throughout the Township and applies when construction and/or re-construction is proposed on a property:

  • How land may be used, including uses that are permitted (Permitted Uses);
  • Definitions of various uses including lot, dwelling, home industry (What is ____?);
  • Where and how big buildings and structures can be built on a lot (Setbacks, Lot Coverage);
  • The types of buildings and structures that are permitted and how they may be used (Dwellings, Garden/Secondary Suites, Garages/Workshops);
  • How and when the Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) calculation (separation of livestock uses from houses and other non-agricultural uses) will apply; and
  • Other matters, such as:
    • Accessory Buildings/Garages:  Size, height and location
    • Undersized or “Grandfathered” lots

The purpose of the Zoning By-law is to implement the policies of the Township’s Official Plan, which is Council’s long-term vision for land use in the Township. The Zoning By-law provides a legally enforceable way of implementing the Official Plan and managing land use and future development.

Zoning By-law #034-2014 contains the current regulations for the Township. It has been in force since November 12, 2014.

Paper copies of the Zoning Bylaw can be purchased or viewed at the Township office. Digital copies are available below.
