Zoning

The City of Greater Sudbury’s Zoning By-law 2010-100Z, establishes and regulates the use of land by implementing the policies of the City’s Official Plan. The Zoning By-law provides the City with the legally enforceable means of regulating land use, scale and intensity of development. 

Zoning protects areas from incompatible land uses and establishes standards for development.  Zoning by-laws contain specific provisions for:

  • how high buildings can be built
  • setbacks from property lines
  • the amount of parking required for specific uses, along with other matters.
