​​​​​​​Zoning by-laws are a set of regulations under the Planning Act. Zoning by-laws address matters like how land and buildings are used, building heights and size, density, paring, lot sizes, driveways, landscaping, and more. 

For questions about how to find out what the zoning is for a property, try the "What's My Zoning?" guide.
