The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative will develop a strategic, simplified and streamlined Zoning Bylaw to enable people, places and businesses to thrive and prosper.

The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative is a multi-year comprehensive overhaul of Edmonton’s current Zoning Bylaw that includes rethinking how, what and why the City regulates in terms of zoning and land development. 

Renewing the Zoning Bylaw is a long-overdue process in reimaging Edmonton’s regulatory framework to deliver excellent services to our community and realize the vision of ConnectEdmonton and The City Plan.  

The proactive decisions made in Edmonton’s Zoning Bylaw will enhance Edmonton’s competitive advantage, lay the groundwork for generations to come and help create a more equitable, open and caring city for all.

Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative Goals 
  • Develop a user-friendly Zoning Bylaw that is aligned with City policies and directions
  • Streamline and simplify Zoning Bylaw regulations and associated services and processes
  • Rezone properties city-wide to align with the zones in the new Zoning Bylaw
  • Ensure a smooth transition to a new Zoning Bylaw and new online tools (technology) for all stakeholders
  • Implement a thorough and robust engagement and communication plan​​​
