Zoning bylaw put on hold to complete Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy

The first draft of the new zoning bylaw was released to the public on October 27, 2016. The regulatory framework recommended by the Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy will form an important component of the new zoning bylaw. Therefore, further advancement of the new zoning bylaw is put on hold until the Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy is complete. The recommendations of the strategy will be incorporated into the second draft of the new zoning bylaw, which is now anticipated to be released in 2019. During this time, staff will continue to work to resolve a number of "bucket issues" (e.g. short-term rentals such as Airbnb, public versus public school permissions, etc.) that have been identified through the zoning bylaw review process.

First Draft

The first draft of the bylaw is available for public review and comment:

In addition to the PDF versions of the rural area and urban area zoning maps provided above, the zoning maps can also be viewed on tab 6 of the City's interactive Planning and Development Map.
