The Town of Tecumseh is governed by three separate Zoning By-laws. These Zoning By-laws represent the three former municipalities (Town of Tecumseh, Township of Sandwich South and Village of St. Clair Beach) that existed separately prior to the January 1, 1999 amalgamation of the three areas.
PURPOSE OF A ZONING BY-LAW
A zoning bylaw contains provisions that regulate the use, size, height, density and location of buildings on properties within a municipality. The overall intent of a zoning bylaw is to regulate how land can be used, what can be built on a specific parcel of land and where the building can be located on the property.
A typical zoning bylaw identifies the zones which show how a property can be used. A property can be used for various land uses that range from residential to commercial to industrial to agricultural, along with many other land uses.
