Zoning By-laws

Zoning Bylaws contain standards governing the development of land and the construction of buildings including permitted uses, size, height and location of structures. For example, the City's Zoning Bylaws regulate how close to the lot line you can build or if you can locate a certain type of business at an address in Markham.
