Know Your Zone

Consultation has concluded

A sunset city-scape in a grid, interspersed with colourful blocks.

We’re reviewing the existing Zoning Bylaw to ensure it aligns with the City’s updated Official Plan, reflects current zoning practices and works for you and your neighbours today and in the future. Really, we’re making sure all the pieces fit together to support our shared vision for growth as laid out in the Official Plan through a new set of rules.

To do this, we have to look at each and every property in Guelph—each residential, commercial and industrial property, all City-owned and private property, everything.

That means we are looking at how your property is zoned.

We want to know what works for you, what doesn’t and what you would like to see in the new zoning bylaw.

A new zoning bylaw may change the rules for your property. What rules do you think we should take a closer look at? 

Our current zoning by-laws force people to be zonedout of our existing communities. I do not believe that is appropriate for a community that strives to be inclusive.

The city should look at how residential zoning by-laws can proactively support building inclusive communities that support multi-family living, intergenerational housing and co-housing areas all residential zones in this city.

No one should be zonedout of this city.

R.1 & R.2 Zoning. To align our residential zoning by-laws with the strategic goals of the Official Plan, I believe the City should explore permitting up to 3 units of housing, as of right, on land currently zoned as R.1 & R.2.
