Zoning By-law Review

 

OVERVIEW

The Town of Penetanguishene has initiated a review of its Zoning By-law. The outcome of this project will be a new Zoning By-law that applies to the entire Town.

 The Town hosted a Zoning for the Future Symposium that explored how the Town's plans for the future can inform the zoning that is prepared today. 

The video of the Symposium can be found on the Town's YouTube channel or by following this link:

  WHAT IS A ZONING BY-LAW?

A Zoning By-law is prepared under the requirements of Section 34 of the Planning Act. The Zoning By-law regulates the types of land uses and the character, height, location, size and massing of buildings for all lands in the community. Currently, the Town administers Zoning By-law 2000-02, as amended, and it applies to all lands within the Town.

 WHY IS THE TOWN PREPARING A NEW ZONING BY-LAW?

The current Zoning By-law was enacted in 2000. In 2018, the Town adopted a new Official Plan and there is now a need to update the Zoning By-law in order to implement the policies of the new Official Plan.
