What is a conditional use order?
A zoning by-law will identify, within a specific zoning category, whether the use of land or a building is permitted or conditional. A conditional use is one that is generally consistent with other uses in the zone and which may be allowed under certain circumstances at a municipality’s discretion. Identifying conditional uses in a zoning by-law allows for site specific factors to be considered in approving a development.
