The Township of Springwater is responsible for the review, development and implementation of land use policies and by-laws.
Our Zoning By-law regulates the use, location, size and height of structures, as well as other provisions. Our Zoning By-law complements the Township's Official Plan to ensure thoughtful and sustainable development. Please check the zoning regulations for your property before applying for a building permit. Find the zoning of your property on our Zoning By-law page or by calling Planning at 705-728-4784 x2019.
Sometimes there are situations where property restrictions affect the property owner's project goals. In these situations, we encourage property owners to arrange a pre-consultation meeting with the Township of Springwater's Planning Department to find an application process that best suits their proposal. Please see our Planning Applications page for more information.
