The Zoning Bylaw Renewal Initiative consists of 4 projects.


Project Components

Creating a New Zoning Bylaw
Writing a New Zoning Bylaw

Creating a new Zoning Bylaw is a rare opportunity to rethink what we regulate in terms of land development and whether we are regulating the right things. 
In September 2022, Edmonton’s draft Zoning Bylaw was shared for public feedback. View the draft bylaw and public comments. A What We Heard report summarizing the engagements will be available in Q1 2023. 

Rezoning land to align with the new Zoning Bylaw

The rezoning project will help realize the vision of the new Zoning Bylaw by applying new zones to all properties in Edmonton.

Guiding Principles were created to provide stakeholders and Edmontonians with a degree of transparency and predictability throughout the rezoning process. 

The City has also created a “Know Your Zone” Rezoning Map. Explore the Rezoning Map and get to Know Your Zone by pulling up your residence, local coffee shop or business.

Technology Improvement
Providing technology to manage the new Zoning Bylaw, and improving the online customer experience for planning and development services.

Technology will help Edmontonians access the Zoning Bylaw to better understand how its regulations affect properties and allow them to view in-progress development applications. 

Project Implementation
Ensuring a smooth transition to the new Zoning Bylaw and technology through thoughtful implementation.

Transitioning to the new Zoning Bylaw will involve updates to land development processes and services, as well as thoughtfully planned education, training and awareness opportunities for affected homeowners, applicants, staff and more.
