Part 6 - Residential Zones (Sections 155 to 168)

The City of Ottawa Zoning By-law is made available on the web site for information, however confirmation on the zoning provisions should be sought through the City’s development information officers (DIO), by contacting 311 and asking for the DIO for the geographic area in question.

This part contains the Urban and Suburban residential zones that apply to the City and includes:

In the Urban/Suburban area the R1- Residential First Density (detached dwellings), R2- Residential Second Density (two unit dwellings), R3- Residential Third Density (townhouse dwellings), R4- Residential Fourth Density (low rise apartments), R5- Residential Fifth Density (mid/high-rise apartments) and the RM-Mobile Home zone applies to all areas. (By-law 2012-334)

  2. allow a number of other residential uses to provide additional housing choices within detached dwelling residential areas;
  3. permit ancillary uses to the principal residential use to allow residents to work at home;
  4. regulate development in a manner that is compatible with existing land use patterns so that the detached dwelling, residential character of a neighbourhood is maintained or enhanced; and
  5. permit different development standards, identified in the Z subzone, primarily for areas designated as Developing Communities, which promote efficient land use and compact form while showcasing newer design approaches.

For those lots outside of Schedule 342, the minimum rear yard setback is 25% of the lot depth which must comprise at least 25% of the area of the lot, however it may not be less than 6 m and need not exceed 7.5 m. Despite the foregoing, on lots with depths of 15 metres or less, the minimum rear yard setback is 4 m.

For those lots within S. 342, see Part V, Section 144 – Alternative Yard Setbacks for Low-Rise Residential Uses (By-law 2020-288)

Section 162 - R4 Subzones

  1. In the R4 Zone, the following subzones and provisions apply such that:
    1. Column I lists the subzone character;
    2. Column II lists the uses from Section 161 (1) that are prohibited uses;
    3. Column III identifies the principal permitted dwelling types in order to differentiate in Columns III to XI the required zone provisions applying to the dwelling types;
    4. Columns IV through X inclusive, establish required zone provisions applying to development in each subzone;
    5. Column XI lists the reference number of additional provisions applying in each subzone. The additional provisions themselves are provided in Table 162B. Where an additional provision applies, the corresponding provision specified in Table 162B takes ultimate precedence over any provision provided in Table 162A;
    6. Where a superscript number occurs in Table 162A - eg. varies1, the superscript number 1 refers to a number in Column I of Table 162B which sets out an additional provision;
    7. Where “na” appears, it means that the associated provision is not applicable; and
    8. Where “varies” appears, the associated provision is referenced and provided as an additional provision.
