Zone Clarington

ZONE Clarington Logo

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. 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
