Comprehensive review of Zoning By-Law

Council has approved MHBC Planning to complete a comprehensive review of the Township of Huron-Kinloss Zoning By-law. The Zoning By-law is a legal document that specifies how land can be used through regulations (property setbacks, building heights etc.) and permissions (residential, commercial, agricultural, etc). The Township's current bylaw is 16 years old and requires an update as a result of the recent approval of the Township's new Official Plan in 2016.  The Planning Act requires that municipalities amend their Zoning By-laws within three (3) years of a new Official Plan being in effect. It is also important to ensure the Zoning By-law reflects current practices, changes to provincial policy, and supports the strategic directions of the Township.  Preparing a new Zoning By-law has an impact on property rights.

The Township has included ample opportunities for public consultation throughout the process in 2017 for residents to review the draft by-law and provide comments to the Township. 

All meetings will be advertised on the Township website, in local papers or you can add your name to a notification list by contacting Sonya Watson, Clerk at swatson@huronkinloss.com.  

The next update by MHBC will be at the July 10th, 2017 Council meeting.



Littering in the Township is Prohibited

 

Please be reminded there is no dumping brush, grass clippings or flower bed waste onto Municipal parklands.
