Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Updates to the Zoning and Development By-law in effect November 14, 2022.

Council approved changes that will make it easier to find and use information contained within the Zoning and Development By-law on July 5, 2022. The updated by-law will be in effect November 14, 2022.

Updates include improved document navigation, enhanced document accessibility features, and clearer rules with diagrams and tables.

Find your zoning district or review zoning and land use documents, including the Zoning and Development By-law, official development plans, policies, guidelines and bulletins by visiting the zoning and land use document library.

We want to ensure that everyone has access to the updated Zoning and Development By-law. If you are unable to view or read the documents send an email to regredesign@vancouver.ca or call 3-1-1.

In Fall 2018 we launched the Regulation Redesign project to simplify the City of Vancouver's land use regulations, policies and online tools to support the streamlining of permit processing. This webpage provides a one-stop location where you can learn about the project progress, share your input and stay up to date on engagement opportunities.
