Purpose of a Zoning By-law

A Zoning By-law identifies the zones that 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.

A zoning bylaw contains provisions that regulate:

  • how land can be used;
  • what can be built on a property;
  • the use, size, height, density and location of buildings and/or structures on a property; and
  • where a building and/or structure can be located on a property.

Town Zoning By-laws

The Town of Tecumseh is governed by three separate Zoning By-laws shown below. These Zoning By-laws represent the three former municipalities (Town of Tecumseh, Village of St. Clair Beach and Township of Sandwich South) that existed separately prior to the January 1, 1999 amalgamation of the three areas.

Please note:   Amendments to the Zoning By-laws are common.   Accordingly, all information contained in the links below should be confirmed with Town Staff.
