All non-residential uses and some residential uses in Milton require the approval of a Certificate of Occupancy prior to commencement of business operations as per subsection 1.3 of Zoning By-law #144-2003, as amended, and Section 1.4 of Zoning By-law #016-2014, as amended. It is recommended you confirm that your proposed use is permitted by the Zoning By-law prior to purchasing a property or signing a lease.
No change may be made in the type of use of any land, Building or Structure within any zone category without first having applied for and obtaining a Certificate of Occupancy (Zoning) from the Chief Building Official or his or designate to the effect that the proposed use is not contrary to this By-law. Notwithstanding the above, no Certificate of Occupancy (Zoning) shall be required by a Public Authority or for any type of dwelling unit with the exception of Bed and Breakfast Establishment, Cottage Industry, Retirement Dwelling, Home Industry, Home Occupation, Rooming, Boarding or Lodging Houses, Group Home, Correctional, Group Home Type 1 and Group Home Type 2.
Please submit these documents along with a completed application form:
