The Township of Ramara's Zoning Bylaw enforces our Official Plan by outlining the permitted land uses. The Zoning Bylaw will tell you the setbacks, height restrictions, and maximum lot coverages for your building projects. The Zoning Bylaw also determines the minimum lot frontages when severing new lots.

Building Permits

To get a building permit, you need to send the Planning Department a site plan that shows your compliance with the Zoning Bylaw. You can also contact us to find out your zoning, and to confirm any amendments to the Zoning Bylaw.
