Zoning and Construction

What is the zoning of my property?

  • Each property is examined on an individual basis, as the zoning may vary from one property to another.
  • A municipal address and a legal description of the property are required to confirm zoning on a site.
  • Zoning Designations can be found by using "E-Services" located in the drop down menu at the top of this page.  Click on the "Property Query" button to access the next screen which will allow you to look up properties by municipal address.
  • If you know the location of the property within the City, you can also use the zoning maps to confirm the designated zoning.
  • To view the provisions of each zoning, you can view the Zoning By-law (see Building By-laws Online).
  • If you require more detailed zoning information, please contact the Planning & Building Services Department at (519) 255-6543 or visit the department located on the 4th floor at 400 City Hall Square East. 

When will construction commence?

  • Construction will start once site plan approval has been granted and a building permit has been issued.

Not certain if you need a permit?

  • Contact the Planning & Building Services Department with details of the work you are planning. Our staff will be able to assist you in making that determination.
