The City of Vancouver is divided into many zoning districts, shown on this map, the Zoning District Plan. Each zoning district has a corresponding district schedule in the Zoning and Development By-law. The following is a brief description of the intent of each district schedule, included here to provide a general understanding of the various zoning districts. The Zoning and Development By-law and applicable official development plan by-laws must be consulted for a definitive statement of district schedule intent and regulations.


Where a zoning district applies to one specific area of the city, the area isnoted in parenthesis. Where a zoning district is followed by the letter “N”, noise mitigation for residential development is required.
