Zoning tells you the type of development allowed on a property. 

Rezoning is the process of changing a property’s zoning to allow for new development. 

Some rezonings also require a plan amendment if the proposed zone does not align with an existing development plan

You can find the zoning of a property through the zoning map and find zoning rules in the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw.  See What is Zoning? to learn more. 

Zoning Bylaw Changes Underway

The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative is proposing significant changes to the existing Zoning Bylaw. These changes, if approved by City Council, will become effective on January 1, 2024.
