City Council Endorses Planning Program
At the Standing Committee of Council on Policy and Strategic Priorities on 27 July 2016 it was unanimously agreed to begin a planning program for the Heather Street Lands. Council directed Planning staff to create a Policy Statement that will guide the redevelopment of the site. The Policy Statement will establish principles and objectives relating to a range of topics, including: land use, density, height, public benefits, transportation, built form and character, heritage, sustainability and development phasing. The Policy Statement will be presented for Council?s consideration at the end of the process and, if adopted, used to inform any future rezoning of the Lands.
The joint venture partners welcome this important first step in the planning process and are looking forward to working with the City and the local community to develop the Heather Street Lands.
