The purpose and effect of zoning by-law 2016-108 will be the following changes to North Oakville Zoning By-law 2009-189:

  • In section 3.0, Definitions, a definition of “grade” will be added, and the definition of “height or overall height” will be changed to describe that the height of accessory buildings and structures is to be determined from “grade”.
  • In section 4.3, General Regulations, Uses Permitted in all Zones, s. 4.3.2, All Zones except NHS and ED, will be changed to say that a “public park” is subject to the regulations of the Park (P) Zone.
  • In section 4.14, General Regulations, Standards for Accessory Buildings and Structures, s. 4.14.1, Permitted Locations and Setbacks, new standards will be added specifically for accessory buildings and structures in the Institutional (I), Park (P) and Stormwater Management Facility (SMF) Zones. Also, in s. 4.14.2, Maximum Height, the maximum permitted overall height for accessory buildings and structures will be lowered in most zones. A new maximum permitted overall height will be added specifically for accessory buildings and structures in the Institutional (I), Park (P) and Stormwater Management Facility (SMF) Zones.
