The City of Waterloo's zoning by-laws establish and regulate land use in the city by implementing the policies of our official plan.

Zoning requirements affect a number of property-related issues:

  • Building locations and setbacks
  • Construction
  • Lot size
  • Parking requirements
  • Permitted land uses

Use this map or the interactive one below to determine which zoning by-law your property falls under - no. 1108 or no. 1418. The interactive tool allows you to identify and download specific sections of the by-law that pertain to your property.
