COMPREHENSIVE ZONING BYLAW

The Zoning By-law is a document approved by the Loyalist Township Council which defines the permitted uses and development standards for specific areas or "zones". The zoning by-law is a precise document which must be in conformity with the municipality's Official Plan, the more general policy document of the municipality.

Zoning By-laws provide municipalities with a way to co-ordinate land uses, protect areas by preventing incompatible uses and establish appropriate standards for development. A typical zone contains a list of uses permitted in that zone and regulations related to lot sizes, setbacks from lot lines, building height and building size.

The zoning by-law also contains general provisions, which relate to all areas. Typically these regulations contain standards for accessory buildings and building too close to hazards such as flood plains.


The current zoning by-law is a consolidation of the Ernestown Township, Village of Bath and Amherst Island zoning by-laws.
