Origin

(June 12, 2018) Report from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

This report presents a recommended city-wide Official Plan Amendment for second units. The proposed policy change will clarify and strengthen existing policies that provide for a full range of housing and intensification and infill that is consistent with the Official Plan.

 

The recommended Official Plan Amendment reflects feedback received through public consultation with stakeholders, including the general public and relevant City Divisions.  The Official Plan Amendment responds to provincial policy changes to the Planning Act and Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017 and reflects provincial direction to further encourage the creation of second units across the province. The recommended Official Plan Amendment is appended to this report as Attachment 1.

 

The proposed Second Units Official Plan Amendment would bring the City Official Plan into conformity with the Provincial Policy Statement and Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
