Accessory buildings and structures are permitted within the City of Mississauga subject to the regulations of Zoning By-law 0225-2007. They include:
The regulations limit locations, sizes, height and floor areas.
A building permit may not always be required, but all accessory structures must comply with zoning by-law regulations.
The regulations that deal with accessory structures can be found in 4.1.2 - Accessory Buildings and Structures
of the zoning by-law.
When planning your project, find out the zoning designation of your property. Confirm your property size and area with a lot survey and be aware of the surrounding zones that might limit what you can build on your property.
If your lot is next to land zoned greenbelt for example, any new structures will have to be built farther away from the edge of your lot than would be normally required.
