The Township of Springwater's Zoning By-law controls the use and development of properties and buildings. The Zoning By-law implements policies set out in our Official Plan by placing properties into categories such as residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and agricultural.
Each of the zoning categories has a list of permitted uses and regulations, including:
- Lot size and frontage
- Building size and height
Applying for a zoning by-law amendment
A zoning by-law application (“rezoning”) is required when a proposed use or structure does not meet the requirements of our Zoning By-law. A rezoning application must conform to the Official Plan. If it doesn't, you may need an official plan amendment before applying for a rezoning. Council will review and consider the zoning amendment at a public meeting.
