REZONING APPLICATION 7-2016-85 OF 2002 is a City-initiated general amendment to the City’s Zoning By-law No. 85 of 2002. The purpose of this application is to bring the City’s zoning regulations into conformity with the Planning Act, which requires municipalities to permit secondary dwelling units in single detached, semi-detached and townhouse dwellings.

The proposal would amend the zoning regulations for secondary dwelling units in zones where the use is permitted. The proposed changes would reduce zoning regulations for secondary dwelling units, primarily for lot area and lot frontage requirements.

More specifically, the following changes are proposed to Zoning By-law 85 of 2002:

  2. Add a new Subsection 3.10(4) to regulate secondary dwelling units, which would include:
    1. minimum and maximum floor areas
    2. minimum lot sizes and lot frontages
    3. restrictions in natural hazard areas;
  3. Amend Section 3.37(2)(a) to require a minimum of one parking space for a secondary dwelling unit, which may be provided in tandem;
  4. Amend Section 8.1 by removing “A converted single detached dwelling containing not more than 2 dwelling units” as a permitted use;
  5. Delete Section 8.2.2. in its entirety; and
  6. Amend Zoning Map Parts 1-83 of Zoning By-law by replacing them with updated Zoning maps that would include approved Official Plan natural hazard mapping.
