The City is divided into "zones", where different land uses are permitted. There are zones, for example, which permit single detached dwellings, while others permit apartment buildings, and still others permit shopping centres or industrial uses. Occasionally a property owner may wish to change of the range of uses permitted on the property or wishes to develop the property for a use that is currently not permitted by the zone. To do this, a Zoning By-law Amendment process is required which involves a public review of the application.
