Zoning & Development Plan Amendments

What is a Zoning Amendment?

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 Amendment?

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. Please view the Zoning By-law for more information or contact one of the Planning & Development Officers.

What is a Development Plan Amendment?

A Development Plan Amendment, or a “Redesignation”, is the designation change of a particular property, properties or general area within a designation area of the Development Plan. The Development Plan outlines specific policies for development within a particular designated area. The Zoning By-law follows the Development Plan, therefore certain designated areas do not support the uses of certain zones. In most cases, a Development Plan Amendment is required prior to a Zoning Amendment, as the Development Plan is a master document for development that is superior in legislation to the Zoning By-law. 

How do I know if I need a Development Plan Amendment?

The R.M. of Taché Development Plan By-law contains maps that outline general area designations. Designated Areas have listed policies in the Development Plan that may either support or object to specific types of development. Please view the Development Plan for more information or contact one of the Planning & Development Officers.
