Origin

(October 27, 2017) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

On October 6, 2015, Toronto and East York Community Council requested City Planning staff to review the land use policy framework for Bloor Street West from Christie Street to Lansdowne Avenue and consider developing urban design and built form guidelines for the area.

 

On May 2, 2017, Community Council requested City Planning staff to develop guiding principles for new development in the area, and to assess heritage resources along Bloor Street West from Ossington Avenue to Dovercourt Road.

 

City Planning staff commenced the Bloor Street West Planning Study in 2017 to address these requests from Community Council. 

 

This report includes a status update on the Study, including consultations with residents of Wards 18, 19 and 20, and provides a summary of community comments, and a set of guiding principles prepared by City Planning staff, informed by the consultations. 

 

City Planning staff are recommending that City Council endorse the Bloor Street West Guiding Principles in this report. These principles will inform the review of current and future development applications within the study area. City Planning staff will report to Planning and Growth Management Committee in early 2018 on the timing of the next phase of the Bloor Street West Planning Study as part of the Division's study work program.
