The function of the Zoning By-law is to implement the Official Plan’s vision, to put it into effect. If a developer wishes to use or develop their property in a way not permitted by the zoning by-law, they may apply for an amendment, a rezoning. To be approved, the proposed rezoning must align with municipality’s Official Plan. Applications to amend the zoning by-law can only be made after two years have passed since the creation of a new comprehensive Zoning By-Law, as a result of an Official Plan update, unless Council permits the application to be made.
