New Comprehensive Zoning By-law Documents

The new East Ferris Comprehensive Zoning By-law seeks to implement zoning regulations in conformity with new Official Plan policies and legislative changes from the Province of Ontario. The goal is to do this while still incorporating elements of previously existing by-laws, with regards to terminology and approach, in order to maintain some consistency between past zoning exercises and new standards, where possible.

Zoning is intended to set specific land use standards for all land within the municipality with regards to permitted uses and specific regulations such as setbacks and other lot development standards.
