A Zoning By-law governs the use of all lands, buildings and structures within a municipality. It also outlines how land and buildings may be used, where buildings and other structures may be located, and what constraints may be applicable to the development of a particular property (i.e. parking requirements, lot coverage, density, etc.). The policies and mandates of the Official Plan are implemented through the Zoning By-law.
The Township of Whitewater is currently administering the pre and post amalgamation Zoning By-laws for the former Township of Westmeath, Township of Ross, Village of Cobden and Village of Beachburg.
