Zoning Bylaw Review

Development Applications Fee Bylaw, 2020 passed by City Council November 30th 2020

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement and as part of the comprehensive Zoning Bylaw Review, we are consolidating all fees related to land use and development applications into one document.

The Development Applications Fee Bylaw:

  • Consolidates all land use and development application fees into one bylaw.
  • The sections regarding fees from the Zoning Bylaw, Subdivision Bylaw and Condominium Approvals Policy will be removed.
  • Fees will remain as previously approved in the 2020 and 2021 Budget. To view fees for 2020 and 2021, please click here.

How will this impact you?

  • All fees will now be in one document rather than dispersed in a few different documents, making them easier to find and understand.

Why are we reviewing the Zoning Bylaw?

The Zoning Bylaw last underwent a review from 2007 to 2009. To align with identified strategic priorities and current trends, a range of amendments will be considered, including business-friendly and economic-development initiatives, environmental initiatives and other current trends in planning.  Amendments will also align with other strategic City initiatives, including the Plan for Growth, the Culture Plan, the Saskatoon North Partnership for Growth Regional Plan and the redesigned Official Community Plan.

What do we hope to achieve?

This project will undertake a review of the Zoning Bylaw to ensure that it meets current and desired trends in commercial, residential and community developments. 

The Review will also include the development of a digital platform for the Zoning Bylaw.

What is not included in the review?

The Zoning Bylaw project will not consider specific zoning requests - these are better handled through the development review process.

The project will also not include a review of the organization and basic structure of the Zoning Bylaw.
