As part of the Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw Review Project (Zoning Bylaw Project), the City is reviewing regulations for the development of new one- and two-unit and semi-detached homes in Saskatoon’s established neighbourhoods. We are reviewing regulations put in place in 2015 to evaluate the effect they have had and make amendments as necessary.
What are the established neighbourhoods?
The established neighbourhoods include all neighbourhoods within Circle Drive, as well as Sutherland, Forest Grove, and Montgomery Place. You can find the full map on the Background Tab on this page.
What will be included in the review?
We are reviewing a number of regulations for the construction of new homes and major renovations. These include:
- Established neighbourhoods fall into two categories, based on their existing character. We are reviewing which neighbourhoods are included as established neighbourhoods, and what category each of the neighbourhoods should fall into.
- The rules that we use to regulate massing (size and shape) of new homes.
- How far back should new homes be from the front property line and how this compares to the existing historic homes
- The rules for porches for new homes closer to the front property line including allowing for closed verandas and 3-season rooms closer to the street.
- How high should the front door of new houses be allowed to be from the ground.
- In post-war neighbourhoods, how wide new properties should be as compared to the existing properties on the block.
