Haldimand County is conducting a Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review to replace the three existing Zoning By-laws of the former municipalities that are currently in effect:

  • City of Nanticoke Zoning By-law NE 1-2000;
  • Town of Haldimand Zoning By-law 1-H 86; and
  • Town of Dunnville Zoning By-law 1-DU 80

What is a Zoning By-law?

A Zoning By-law is a legal tool that regulates the use of land and buildings, the size and width of lots,  as well as the location and heights of buildings and associated parking requirements. Typically, Zoning By-laws:

  • Implements the County’s Official Plan;
  • Ensure compatibility between land uses and neighbouring properties;
  • Help maintain the character of a neighbourhood by setting consistent standards; and,
  • Set expectations for new development to achieve community planning objectives.

How do I get involved?

A final draft version of the Comprehensive Zoning By-law has been prepared by the consulting team led by WSP and County staff. An information presentation and a Draft version of the Zoning By-law, with mapping, are now online for public review on the County’s website at the following link: https://www.haldimandcounty.ca/planning-services/comprehensive-zoning-by-law-review/

Please provide comments on the Draft Zoning By-law or the Interactive Map via the Comment Submission Form online at link above, or by email the Planning department by August 28, 2020. For additional information, please contact Christina Botas – Haldimand County Planning Department at 905-318-5932 ext. 6209.
