Comprehensive Zoning By-Law Review

The Zoning By-law is a legal document that specifies how land can be used through regulations (property setbacks, building heights etc.) and permissions (residential, commercial, agricultural, etc).  It is also important to ensure the Zoning By-law reflects current practices, changes to provincial policy, and supports the strategic directions of the Township.

As a result of the updated Township of Huron-Kinloss Offical Plan in 2016 and the fact that the Planning Act requires that municipalities amend their Zoning By-laws within three (3) years of a new Official Plan being in effect, the Township of Huron-Kinloss underwent a Zoning By-Law Comprehensive Reveiw and passed the new Zoning By-Law 2018-98.
