Origin

(April 16, 2018) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

This report recommends establishing a planning framework to permit laneway suites on lands within the Toronto and East York District that are designated as Neighbourhoods by amending both the Official Plan and City-wide Zoning By-law.

 

The City's Official Plan does not reference or set out specific provisions for second units, however second units are permitted city-wide as-of-right in the City-wide Zoning By-law 569-2013.  A second unit can take many forms but is generally considered to be subordinate to the primary dwelling unit on a lot. Second units are an important part of the City’s rental housing stock. Laneway suites are one form of second unit.

 

Similar to other second units, laneway suites are a part of complete communities. They can provide more opportunities for people to live in ground related housing, for residents to live close to where they work, shop, and play and, can help make the city's urban lanes more green, liveable, and safe. Laneway suites can contribute to increasing the supply of rental housing and provide additional housing options for households at different ages and life stages.

At its meeting of July 4, 2017, Toronto City Council directed City Planning staff, in consultation with numerous City Divisions, to initiate a review and consultation of the City's current policy and planning framework regarding laneway suites within the Toronto and East York District. City Planning staff were directed to prepare a report to Toronto and East York Community Council with recommended policy and Zoning By-law amendments necessary to implement a laneway suite strategy, and with recommendations on other related matters such as the provision of affordable housing and infrastructure costs.

 

This report contains a detailed planning rationale for the introduction and regulation of laneway suites within the Toronto and East York area and discusses the policy implications and intent of proposed performance standards and criteria. These performance standards and criteria intend that laneway suites will provide a new form of ground-related, rental and extended family housing that will fit appropriately within the scale of established Neighbourhoods, and limit their impact on the existing physical character, while contributing to the growth of the City’s rental housing stock.

3a - Changing Lanes: The City of Torontoís Review of Laneway Suites - City-Initiated Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Amendment - Supplementary Report

Origin
(May 28, 2018) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This report responds to the request from Toronto and East York Community Council at their meeting on May 2, 2018, to report to the June 6, 2018 meeting of Toronto and East York Community Council with additional information regarding Item TE32.11 Changing Lanes: The City of Toronto’s Review of Laneway Suites City-initiated Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendment – Final Report. This report contains additional information on matters related to an affordable rental laneway suites pilot initiative, landscaped open space, tree protection, the condition and maintenance of rear laneways, and responses to community correspondence in accordance with Toronto and East York Community Council’s request.

 

The original Changing Lanes report (April 16, 2018) recommended Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments to permit laneway suites subject to a range of criteria.

 

This report outlines revisions to the proposed permissions related to laneway suites by clarifying the required amount of soft landscaped space in a rear yard, permission and protocol around tree protection, reductions to some permitted encroachments, and adjustments to the monitoring period. The recommended height and form of a laneway suite is consistent with that recommended in the April 16, 2018 Changing Lanes Report. This report also recommends initiating the proposed Affordability Pilot Program at such time as Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments are in force.

 

This report replaces the recommendations of the report, April 16, 2018, from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, in full, with some modifications, as detailed in this report.
