Edmonton's New Zoning Bylaw

Edmonton’s new Zoning Bylaw (Charter Bylaw 20001) and city-wide rezoning (Charter Bylaw 21001) were approved by City Council at the Statutory Public Hearing on October 23, 2023. View the Public Hearing recording, access the agenda, and see comments submitted as part of the public record.

The  new Bylaw  and Zoning Map will come into effect on January 1, 2024

Renewing Edmonton’s Zoning Bylaw is an opportunity to align city-building tools to ensure all Edmontonians and property owners have the necessary tools to build and experience the city envisioned in The City Plan.

Why Zoning Matters

Zoning is everywhere—from parks and playgrounds to garden suites and the downtown core. Zoning determines what can be built where. It sets the rules for where new buildings should go, what types of buildings they can be and what types of businesses and activities can happen on a property.
