Zoning By-law

A Zoning By-law regulates and directs land use within the Municipality.

The Municipality of Meaford adopted its new Comprehensive Zoning By-law (#60-2009) in September 2009. This by-law replaced the prior Zoning By-laws which applied to the former Townships of St. Vincent and Sydenham and the former Town of Meaford. Since 2009 a number of updates to the by-law have occured, with the most recent being approved in May 2017.

The Comprehensive By-law has been created and maintained with the goals of unifying permissions across the Municipality and ensuring greater clarity and consistency in application of Zoning regulations.

The Zoning By-law consists of text and mapping.

The text describes specifically the types and location of land uses, buildings and structures that are permitted within the Municipality. It establishes a number of different categories or 'zones', and specifies that types of uses and structures that are permitted in each.

The mapping shows the location of the various zones across the Municipality. By looking at the mapping, a property owner can determine the zoning that applies to their individual lot(s).

Amending the Zoning By-law:

Where a use is proposed that does not meet the permissions or exact standards of the Zoning By-law, a Zoning By-law Amendment may be considered.

An amendment to the by-law may only be considered if the proposed use is permitted by the Municipal Official Plan.

Should you wish to pursue a Zoning Amendment, Staff strongly encourage you to contact the department to schedule a pre-consultation meeting prior to submitting your amendment application.
