Site Plan Control By-Laws

Site Plan Control By-Laws are not zoning by-laws but are used to establish areas where site plan control will be applied over and above the requirements of the zoning by-law. The areas of site plan control are described in the Official Plan.

Site Plan controls are used to ensure that:

  • Development proceed and are maintained in a manner approved by Council
  • New developments meet certain standards of quality and appearance
  • There is safe and easy access for pedestrians and vehicles
  • There is adequate landscaping, parking and drainage, and
  • Neighbouring properties are protected from incompatible development
