Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review Project

Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review Project

The Town of Lincoln is preparing a new Comprehensive Zoning By-law.  The Zoning By-law is the Town’s primary tool to regulate the use of all land in the Town, it divides land into various zone categories (i.e., residential, commercial, employment), and establishes what uses are permitted and where buildings can be located on a property. 

In February 2019, WSP Canada Group Limited was retained by the Town to undertake the Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review.

Key Sectors

Sectors of Focus


An Agricultural Centre of Excellence, Lincoln has the highest number of farms in all of Niagara, supporting more than 3,400 jobs.

Our farms account for $13 of every $100 in gross farm receipts in the Golden Horseshoe while representing only three per cent of the region’s farmland acreage.

Lincoln has become synonymous with grape growing and wine by virtue of its dominant position in Ontario’s $2.3 billion grape and wine industry.
