Zoning Bylaw

The New Westminster Zoning Bylaw is a document which includes requirements such as:

  • the types of uses which are allowed on a property (e.g. retail stores, libraries, residential units)
  • the allowed density (e.g. number of residential units and/or amount of floor space)
  • building height
  • the amount of parking

The Zoning Bylaw is also an important tool for implementing City policies and objectives. Every property in New Westminster is assigned to a zoning district and you can find yours on the map included below or on CityViews.

The most recent parcel zoning information is a​vailable on CityViews, our interactive mapping system.
