ReThink Zoning

is the process of preparing a new comprehensive Zoning By-law for the City of London. Zoning is an important land use tool that has the potential to shape how our communities evolve by regulating how land can be used or developed. The new zoning by-law will implement the policies and direction of the City's Official Plan - The London Plan.



The London Plan

provides a vision

for how London will change over the next twenty years.



Sample Place Type Zones

A series of sample Place Type Zones have been completed to illustrate how policies in The London Plan can be translated into regulation. The sample zones are snapshots of the first draft of the new zoning by-law and provide a structure, sample mapping and preliminary regulations for the Downtown, Neighbourhoods and Light Industrial Place Types



A series of discussion papers have been prepared based on extensive research to help frame the start of the development of a new zoning by-law:
