For further information - or to provide feedback on the CityMap zoning service - please call (519)
930-3510or fax the Zoning Division at (519) 661-2332.Does Zoning By-law Z-1 apply to all land within the City of London boundaries?
No. Zoning By-law Z-1 primarily applies to the City boundaries that existed before January 1, 1993 land annexation. Some lands in the annexed area have been rezoned and included within Zoning By-law Z-1. The remainder of the annexed lands have retained their zones and regulations from the former municipalities' Zoning By-law. While these zone codes are identified on CityMap the regulations are not available online. To obtain a copy of the relevant portions of the By-law and regulations for these annexed lands please contact the City of London Zoning Division.
Currently the City of London is reviewing the zoning of the annexed area to incorporate these lands within Zoning By-law Z-1. The
proposed zoning program is available online and in hard copy from the Planning Division located on the 6th floor of City Hall.

London's Official Plan
& Zoning By-law - Guides to land use planning and development
Zoning is a method of regulating the use of land by designating properties for a specific range of permitted functions - for example, residential, commercial or industrial areas.
The regulations which control the nature, location, scale and form of land uses in London. This By-law implements the city's policies for controlling land use and development as set out in the
Official Plan. The latter document (reviewed at five-year intervals) identifies the directions and strategies that will shape patterns of growth and change to meet our current and future needs.
The Official Plan - and Zoning By-law Z-1 - are not static documents. They are responsive to new trends and circumstances and change to community values. The formal and informal input of Londoners to the consideration of matters such as urban growth strategies; economic development goals; environmental, cultural and heritage issues; and, general "quality of life" needs and expectations are important to this process of monitoring and change.
