Active Planning Applications Map
This map provides an overview of all active Minor Variance and Zoning By-Law Amendment Applications in the Township.
The Zoning By-Law establishes and regulates the use of land across Rideau Lakes. It contains specific legal regulations such as what types of activities can take place and where. It allows us to coordinate land use, protect areas, prevent incompatible uses and establish appropriate standards for development.
If your property is not located in a zone that would allow your type of business, you may wish to discuss a rezoning application with the Development Services department.
Official Plan Map
The Township’s Official Plan was approved by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs in April, 2004. The Official Plan contains policies which are intended to guide public and private interests in such a way as to ensure the best form of development under the most desirable conditions. In addition, the Official Plan sets out guidelines for the preparation of municipal regulations which implement the Plan, establishes policies to govern both the division and development of land, and finally, identifies public actions which need to be taken to support private development. An Official Plan Amendment is required if a proposed development is not permitted by the Official Plan.
Official Plan Update Map
Rideau Lakes is embarking on a major update to our Official Plan. This regular process of review and update is required under the Planning Act. The purpose of an Official Plan is to ensure that future planning and development meets the community’s needs.
