A Zoning Compliance Certificate (ZCC) is intended to confirm for the purchaser that the existing development on the property is compliant with the zoning district in which it is located and that all buildings on the property meet both the Zoning Bylaw regulations as well as the R.M. Building Bylaw requirements. Any development not noted on a ZCC may have been constructed without the required approvals. A ZCC is generally requested by a prospective property purchaser, a real estate agent or lawyer before a formal offer is made to purchase a property. This information can help inform your real estate transaction. For more information regarding Zoning Compliance Certificates, please see the link here.

Zoning is the process of dividing land in a municipality into zoning districts. Examples of different zoning districts in the R.M. include AG – Agricultural, CR1 – Country Residential 1, C – Commercial, and M1 – Light Industrial.
Regulations for each zoning district specify which land uses are prohibited, permitted or discretionary. Each zoning district may have regulations or standards such as the dimension of new lots or parcels of land, the size, location, dimensions and types of buildings and provisions for required parking. Knowing what your land is zoned is the first step in determining what types of development you can consider.
Corman Park has two Policy areas: the Partnership for Growth (P4G) Policy Area and the RM of Corman Park Policy Area for the remainder of the RM. Your policy area will determine your zoning district. The map showing the distinction between these two bylaws (as well as the applicable Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw) can be found here, or by using the Interactive Map here. (Interactive Map -> Planning Development -> P4G Planning District Boundary). For more information on the Interactive Mapping feature, please contact the RM Planning Department.
The Interactive Mapping feature will also display zoning information. To search for a location, you may find it by zooming in on the map, or by using the search function. 'Searches' allows you to find your parcel using your complete tax roll number, address, legal land location, road, or longitude and latitude. Once you find the parcel in question, simply right click on it and a pop-up window will appear. Your zoning information will appear under the Zoning Code. Select the hyperlink and you will find an excerpt from one of the Zoning Bylaws regarding your District.
**UPDATE** Zoning information shown in the interactive mapping system may be currently inaccurate as the system is updated to represent the amended RM Zoning Bylaw and the new P4G Zoning Bylaw. Additionally, any properties which fall within the new P4G district, have been recently rezoned, etc. and may not show the correct zoning on our Interactive Mapping as it is being updated manually. Until the mapping has been updated, please either reference the mapping in the P4G Zoning Bylaw and the RM Zoning Bylaw for updated Zoning Information where applicable or contact the Planning Department for the most up to date information on zoning information.
Applying for a Zoning Compliance Certificate (ZCC) is quite simple.

Office by mail, email, or in person including the application fee of $75.00 by cheque, cash or debit.

A Surveryor's Real Property Report (RPR) is a legal document which illustrates the accurate size and placement of all current permanent above-grade buildings and structures (for example, a dwelling, accessory buildings, sheds, decks, fences, etc) and any registered easements (ex. gas lines, road widening, etc) in relation to the real property boundaries (including their distances). Please see the Saskatchewan Land Surveys Association (SLSA) website for more information.
By legislation in Corman Park, only a Saskatchewan land surveyor can legally determine and mark-out property boundaries in Saskatchewan and prepare an RPR. The R.M. of Corman Park may release documented RPR's with the consent of the property owner, however, the RM cannot confirm if a provided RPR remains accurate to the subject property.
