Front of Yonge Township Council adopted a new Official Plan in 2018. This planning document sets out general policies for land development, land division, and various land uses, and must address matters of Provincial Interest. These include Provincially significant wetlands and woodlands, as well as Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest. The Official Plan does not, by itself, control or regulate the development of land. Detailed control and regulation is implemented through the Zoning by-law.
The current zoning by-law came into effect in September of 2018. It is the legal framework used to implement the Official Plan. It gives detailed regulations for land uses and development It also contains general provisions as well as specific zoning provisions for each of the land use zones in the Township.
