Zoning

The City of Thorold's Zoning By-law was consolidated on June 1, 2018.

The Zoning By-law implements the policies set out in the City's Official Plan. The By-law divides the municipality into several land use zones as illustrated on maps within the document.

Each zone specifies the uses permitted (i.e. residential, commercial, industrial etc.) and the development standards (i.e. setbacks, height).
