Land Use Planning

Like many communities, the Town of Yarmouth is divided into various zones, ranging between residential, commercial, industrial, and other uses. It would be chaos if you could build a shopping mall in the middle of a residential neighbourhood, or a warehouse right next to an elementary school - so the Land Use By-law sets out provisions for how zoned land can be used, the guidelines for developers wishing to build on zoned land, and how to go about rezoning a given property.

To build or make changes to any property in town, a Development Permit must be issued, and to get one of those, you must satisfy all the requirements set forth by the pdf Land Use By-law (15.05 MB) . Information on the Development Permit and where to obtain one can be found here.
