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. 

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.
