10. Land Use Zoning Framework

closeddate_range24 Sep, 2020, 4:00pm - 9 Nov, 2020, 4:01pm

The Land-Use Zoning Matrix is intended to guide applicants in assessing the acceptability or otherwise of development proposals, although the uses listed uses are not exhaustive. It sets out whether uses are: () Generally permitted; (O) Open to consideration; (X) Not generally permitted. Factors such as density, height, massing, traffic generation, public health, design criteria, visual amenity, and potential nuisance by way of noise, odour and pollution are also significant and relevant to the proper planning and development of the area.

Table 7: land use zoning matrix

 

[1] Primary purpose of this zoning is to preserve the integrity of these lands and to ensure future access; therefore proposals for new homes will be directed to alternative locations outside of this zoning type. Applications for single homes will only be permitted in exceptional cases to persons who are direct descendants of farming landowners with assessments on a case by case basis.
