Everytime a MZO is approved you lose your opportunity to provide input on development applications in your community and with no chance of appeal by citizens or environmental groups.
Once the MZO is approved the province controls the use of the land and sets specific requirements for new development, such as minimum lot sizes, heights, frontage, access and servicing requirements. Generally the developer will work with the local council and garner their support of the MZO request like what happened at the last Richmond Hill Council meeting.
Below are all of the MZOs approved in 2020 as of October 30, 2020.
