Comprehensive Zoning By-Law Review Project (Zone Clarington)
On December 14, 2020, the council had directed staff to resume work on the rural phase of the Zoning By-law Review project, which was placed on hold in October 2019. Specifically, the Zone Clarington project was directed to prepare a report for council following Resolution #C-512-20:
That Staff be directed to bring forth report together with a draft a zoning by-law amendment which:
i. Retains the EP zoning in place prior to the zoning by-law review;
ii. Includes schedules from other authorities as additional information in the zoning by-law listing applicable land use regulations;
iii. Contains advisories with respect to the obligations to comply with land use controls of external agencies.
The Zone Clarington project team continues to work to address this mandate. This includes the preparation of the second draft of zoning regulations and mapping for Clarington’s rural area. Staff are preparing a report back to the Planning and Development Committee of Council later this year, the timing will be confirmed. Notice of the meeting date will be published in the Planning eUpdate newsletter once confirmed.
