Interim Control By-law
On May 29, 2023 Council passed Interim Control By-law 23-044. The effect of this By-law is to prohibit the erection of any structure, fence, or sign through the duration of this by-law. This includes, but is not limited to, boathouses, retaining walls, patios, landscaping, decks, fences, walls, or shoreline alteration that are in proximity to the 178-metre contour elevation of the Georgian Bay Shoreline. Amending By-law 23-048 passed on June 7, 2023 included exemptions to By-law 23-044.

Zoning By-law 22-075
The Zoning By-law sets out the land uses permitted throughout the municipality by establishing zone categories on site-specific properties. It also regulates such matters as building location (setbacks), lot coverage, building height, and parking. All development proposals must comply with the Zoning By-law requirements. As a result, you should discuss your development proposal with the Planning Department as soon as possible to either ensure that the proposal complies with the By-law or determine an appropriate course of action to address the deficiency early in the process.
Please be advised that the Township’s Zoning By-law 22-075 is in full force and effect (save and except the appealed portions, and site-specific zoning under appeal) as per Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) oral decision of March 24, 2023.
