The Town of New Tecumseth's Zoning By-law defines the permitted uses of all lands within the Town, and regulates the height, size, location, etc. of all buildings and structures. The Zoning By-law is the primary tool used to implement the Town's Official Plan, and is passed in accordance with the Ontario Planning Act.
