Comprehensive Zoning By-Law Review

Notice of Passing of a new Comprehensive Zoning By-Law

By-Law – 6875-18 -Zoning By-law  and Schedule A

In 2017 the Town of Arnprior updated its Official Plan and established a new planning framework that implements current Provincial policy and addresses contemporary planning issues such as intensification, heritage conservation, economic development, community revitalization, and principles of sustainable development.

The 2017 Official Plan is a comprehensive policy document that affects all land within the Town of Arnprior and provides a vision for future growth. In accordance with Section 26(9) of the Planning Act, there is now a need for the Town of Arnprior to complete a review of its zoning bylaw, in order to ensure that it conforms to the policies of the 2017 Official Plan and implements contemporary zoning tools, where possible.

In order to ensure conformity with the 2017 Official Plan, there is also an opportunity to achieve the following additional objectives through the zoning by-law-review:

  • Ensure that it is easy to understand and interpret;
  • Improve organization and formatting;
  • Update and simplify the zone structure;
  • Update terminology and definitions;
  • Carry forward certain regulations that have been effective since 2001;
  • Determine how existing zone regulations and permitted uses should be modified, as
    required; and,
  • Address additional problems that have been identified by Town staff, stakeholders,
    and members of the public.
