Zoning Bylaw Changes Underway

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. 

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

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

The Zoning Bylaw 12800 (the current Zoning Bylaw) remains in effect until December 31, 2023. You can find the zoning of a property through the City zoning map and find zoning rules in the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw. See What is Zoning? to learn more. 

As of January 1, 2024, the  new Zoning Bylaw ​ and Zoning Map will be in effect. For information on active and future rezoning applications during the transition time, please see the  Files in Transition Guide for Applicants .
