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, and
  • 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.
