Site Plan

Site Plan control protects property rights and values. It also protects environmental and heritage features of a site and its surrounding areas. The Site Plan approval process ensures that planned structures and the overall development of lands contribute to the development of the community in a positive way. More Info here


Plan of Subdivision

A draft Plan of Subdivision is used to divide property into two or more parcels.

Plan of Condominium

A draft Plan of Condominium is used to divide property to allow an individual to own part of a building (or unit) and a share of the property's common areas. This Plan can apply to new and existing residential, commercial and industrial buildings. More Info here


Official Plan

If a person wants to develop a property differently than Richmond Hill's Official Plan or a related Secondary Plan, an Official Plan Amendment application must be submitted.

Zoning By-law

Richmond Hill's Zoning By-laws are required to conform with the Richmond Hill Official Plan. These by-laws contain detailed requirements for how land can be used and what can be built on land. More Info here
