Kawartha Lakes Planning Division is undertaking a project that will take a close look at the current 13 Rural Zoning By-laws and will work directly with our consultants, WSP, to consolidate all regulations into one by-law. The first phase will involve an entire review of the existing rural by-laws by a Council appointed Task Force, who will be in discussion over the course of the next couple months to establish the project schedule and next actions. There is also a Technical Advisory Committee in place to provide input and advice on the content and format of the new zoning by-law.

In additional to the Task Force, the Planning Division will also seek public input through several methods, such as an a online survey, open houses and public meetings. Opportunities to provide your ideas and dates will be announced shortly.

To date, a Discussion Paper has been completed by the Project Team, and a Draft Issues Assessment and Methodology Report has been released for public comment. You can find this document under the 'For Public Comment and Feedback' section.

Background

Since amalgamation in 2001, Kawartha Lakes has been using the original 18 Zoning By-laws to address land development within the municipality as a whole.

While the original By-laws met development needs, the combination of outdated standards and regulations between areas has prompted the decision to create one new comprehensive Zoning By-law for the municipality.

This Project will take place in two phases: the first will address the 13 Rural Zoning By-laws* and the second phase will review the five Urban Zoning By-laws.

*The Oak Ridges Moraine Zoning By-law will be reviewed separately.
