What is a Zoning By-law Amendment (Rezoning)?
A Zoning Amendment, or commonly known as a “Rezoning”, is the zone change of a particular property or properties to allow for uses that are not recognized within the current zone of a property or properties. A Zoning Amendment may also include changing the text of the Zoning By-law to alter a specific requirement that may not allow for a specific land use or building.
How do I know if I need a Zoning By-law Amendment (Rezoning)?
The R.M. of Taché Zoning By-law contains a Main Use Table and Accessory Use Table that identifies uses as: Permitted ("P"), Conditional ("C") or Not Permitted ("-") within a specific zone. If a use is neither Permitted or Conditional in a zone, then that use is Not Permitted and a Zoning Amendment will be required.
