The Zoning Bylaw is a regulatory document that facilitates implementation of the City of Saskatoon's Official Community Plan. All land in the City of Saskatoon is assigned a zoning district and subject to development standards associated with the zoning district. Parking, permitted uses, and setbacks are included in these regulations. In the event that a property owner wishes to change the use or form a building and the proposed changes do not fall within the applied zoning district or Official Community Plan land use designation, applications to amend the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw can be submitted for review. Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Bylaw No. 8770, the Zoning Bylaw, was enacted in July 2009. Related inquiries and requests for confirmation can be directed to the Planning and Development Division.
The Zoning Bylaw Review now has its own webpage to help communicate details about the project as it moves forward.
The Development Portal is a publicly-available tool that allows the public and development industry to see more detailed information regarding land use and servicing components. It is intended to let interested individuals perform their own research. Over time additional functionalities will be added to this resource.
