Zoning By-laws establish and regulate the use of land by implementing the policies of the Municipality's Official Plan.
They provide cities with a way to co-ordinate land uses, protect areas by preventing incompatible uses and establish appropriate standards for development. Zoning By-laws contain specific, legal regulations - for example, what uses are permitted, how high buildings can be built, the maximum number of residential units allowed and the amount of off-street parking required.
