The Zoning Issues and Analysis Report was completed in August 2017. The report provides a summary of the Provincial, Regional and local policies that need to be considered when developing the new Zoning By-law.

A series of Technical Papers have also been prepared in draft. The Technical Papers examine a wide range of specific issues in detail, to inform development of the new Zoning By-law. The Technical Papers address certain key policy and technical topics as identified in the Zoning Issues and Analysis Report.
