The City of Burlington is starting its New Zoning Bylaw Project. This project will create a new Zoning Bylaw that will provide a set of rules for land use planning and development across Burlington.

This updated zoning bylaw will help by:

  • making the rules easy to use,
  • reflecting modern zoning practices,
  • streamlining development approvals and
  • implementing the objectives and policies of the new Official Plan (Burlington Official Plan, 2020).

Burlington’s new Zoning Bylaw will be done in phases. Phase 1 will focus on supporting more housing options in Burlington neighbourhoods.

Phase 1 – Residential Zones is part of an ongoing conversation about Burlington’s community housing needs and will help move forward:

This is just a part of what we need to do to meet our vision for housing in Burlington:

The City’s Official Plan Amendment to Increase Housing Options is being worked on at the same time as the New Zoning Bylaw Project and will inform Phase 1 – Residential Zones. It will focus on using planning tools including the Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw. These new policies and regulations will benefit current and future residents and get us closer to the vision for housing in Burlington.
