  • Planning Initiatives

    City Centre District Policies (OPA 20) and By-law:City Centre District Plan approved and is now in full force and effect.Policies are intended to reinforce and enhance the image of the City Centre as a destination and major regional centre.Mixed use development is encouraged so that its position as an employment, commercial and civic centre will be balanced by residential development, entertainment and facilities for business, visitors and tourists.

  • Planning Initiatives

    City Centre District Zoning By-Law:Lands within the City Centre are pre-zoned in order to allow the City to respond to development initiatives and market considerations in a timely fashion.Each zone category is affixed with a holding provision or H prefix that essentially prevents development from proceeding until such time as the developer or owner complies with specific conditions.Development is no longer delayed with timely and costly public processes and are therefore more able to meet immediate market demands and needs.

  • Planning Initiatives

    Consolidated Zoning and By-law Review:By-law 5500 being the Consolidated Zoning By-law for the City, along with Streetsville, Port Credit and others are being evaluated by the City Planning and Building Department.Intent is to ensure that the By-law is relevant, consistent and easier to understand and work with.
