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.

The new Comprehensive Zoning By-law will implement the policies of the Town’s new Official Plan and provide updated zoning and development standards that reflect new policy and regulatory initiatives at the provincial and Town level. 

At key points throughout the project, the team will engage members of the public.  There will be a number of opportunities to provide input in-person and online.
