Find area development (zoning) regulations

Area development regulations divide a community into zones that permit different land uses. This is also called zoning.

Zoning is used to:

  • provide for orderly development;
  • separate areas of incompatible land use;
  • ensure public safety; and
  • promote neighbourly use of private land.

We usually create area development regulations to implement a local area plan. Sometimes, we create the regulations without a local area plan in place.
