The Township of Malahide's Zoning By-law establishes and regulates the use of land by implementing the policies of the Township's Official Plan.  It provides the municipality with a legally enforceable means of regulating land use, scale and intensity of development.  A Zoning By-law contains specific legal regulations such as permitted uses of a property. 

Accessing Zoning Online

The properties within the Township are identified by different 'zones' where different land uses are permitted.  There are zones, for example, that permit single detached dwellings, others that permit industrial or agricultural uses etc.  To determine the zoning of a property yourself, you can access the Township's Zoning By-law through Elgin Mapping.  

The zoning of each property is designated by a code, comprising numbers and words.  The zoning codes are defined in the by-law.  There are many zoning designations that have special exceptions that are site specific to the various lands indicated in the site specific zone.  While the information contained in the zoning by-law and Elgin Mapping are correct, they should not be the only resource you use.  Please contact the Development Services Coordinator to determine the correct zoning and interpretation of the zoning by-law for your property.
