Downtown Zoning Bylaw update

Commercial downtown zones were reviewed and an amendment was made to the City’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law (1995)-14864 in order to:

  • Support a vibrant Downtown Guelph;
  • Line up the existing Zoning Bylaw with the Downtown Secondary Plan; and
  • Support appropriate development downtown.

This update implements the vision established through the Downtown Secondary Plan.

The Downtown Zoning Bylaw Update was approved by Council on July 24, 2017 and approved with modifications by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) on March 5, 2019 (LPAT Case No.: PL170951).
