The Municipality of Clarington is undertaking a comprehensive review of its zoning by-laws. Clarington’s zoning by-laws specify how land can be used through permissions (residential, commercial, mixed-use, etc.) and regulations (building heights, property setbacks, etc.). Currently, the Municipality has two zoning by-laws: Zoning By-law 84-63 and Zoning By-law 2005-109. Zone Clarington will consolidate the two existing zoning by-laws while addressing current trends and planning best practices.

In November 2018, a first draft of the new zoning by-law was released that included updated general provisions and definitions that apply to all of Clarington, and zone categories and mapping for Clarington’s rural areas. The Zone Clarington project team has now moved into the third phase of the project that will determine the zone categories and mapping for the urban areas – Courtice, Bowmanville, Newcastle Village and Orono. Until a new Clarington Zoning By-law is approved by Council, the existing zoning by-laws will remain in full force and effect.

Zone Clarington is guided by the following principles:

  • To implement the Official Plan, helping Clarington to develop and thrive
  • To modernize and improve usability of the Zoning By-law
  • To respect our unique mix of urban and rural communities

First Draft Zoning By-law

The Draft Zoning By-law is made up of two parts, the draft regulations and maps (schedules) that illustrate the specific zoning proposed for individual properties.

The schedules in the First Draft Zoning By-law are represented in an interactive mapping tool that enables you to quickly and easily compare current zoning with proposed draft zoning, right down to specific land parcels within the municipality.

In January/February 2019, the Municipality of Clarington held several public sessions asking residents and stakeholders to provide input on the first draft of its new Zoning By-law. The public feedback that has been received will inform the next draft of the new Clarington zoning by-law
