The Township of Centre Wellington's Zoning By-law establishes and regulates land use in the Township by implementing the policies of our Official Plan.
The Zoning By-law is available here without the maps for file size considerations.
Zoning requirements affect a number of property-related issues:
- Building locations and setbacks
- Lot size
- Parking requirements
- Permitted land uses
Rezoning is typically required when a new or additional use is requested for a property and/or several lot regulations can't be complied with. A variance is required when the deviation from the zoning regulation can be considered minor in terms of extent and impacts. Completing a zoning application is the first step in this process.
The Committee of Adjustment handles applications for the following:
- Minor variances from the provisions of a zoning by-law
- Enlargement, extension or alteration of a legal non-conforming use of land, buildings or structures
A Variance Application is the first step in this process.
To find what zone applies to a specific property you will need to locate the property on the map.
The Urban Index Map will help determine what urban map the property is on.
The Rural Index Map will help determine what rural map the property is on.
