Public Meeting: New Infill Zoning By-laws
Our neighbourhood, and other established neighbourhoods, have long complained about the lack of compatibility of new infill homes in mature neighbourhoods. The City has listened and together with a working group of representatives from community associations and the building trade, has undertaken to study infill, and to make changes to the infill zoning by-laws.
The WBCA will host a meeting on the new infill zoning by-laws. These cover parking, front yards, entranceways – the streetscape. Questions could include height, massing and rear and side setbacks, but they will be part of the next study on infill, however your questions will be noted.
The guidelines will apply to all new home construction and to existing properties. They will apply to YOU if you plan renovations or additions to your home.
Your opportunity to learn about the by-law and to ask questions and make comments will be on:
