A zoning by-law implements the policies of an official plan. 

It regulates:  

  • How land and buildings are used
  • The location of buildings
  • Lot coverage
  • Building heights
  • Other provisions necessary to ensure proper development

In Oakville, there are currently three comprehensive zoning by-laws in effect, Zoning By-law 2014-014, Zoning By-law 2009-198 and Zoning By-law 1984-063.
