Zoning and Planning

The Township of Baldwin’s Zoning By-law establishes and regulates the use of land by implementing the policies of the Town’s Official Plan.  It provides the township with a legally enforceable means of regulating land use, scale and intensity of development.  Zoning also serves to protect areas by preventing or limiting incompatible uses, and establishing appropriate standards for development. Zoning by-laws contain specific, legal regulations: For example, what uses are permitted, how high buildings can be constructed, the maximum number of residential units allowed or the amount of off-street parking required.
