The survey is to solicit feedback on the draft Interim Control Bylaw and identify land use planning concerns in the Sydenham, Portsmouth and Williamsville Districts.

At the January 10, 2017 meeting, Council directed staff to report back to the January 24, 2017 meeting on how best to word an Interim Control Bylaw prohibiting any new development of, or alterations to, one-family dwellings, two-family dwellings, row dwellings, group dwellings, semi-detached dwellings and multiple family dwellings within the Sydenham, Portsmouth and Williamsville Districts.

At the January 24, 2017 meeting, Council directed Staff to undertake a land use study in respect of the City's existing policies and regulations regarding residential intensification within the same area, in order to provide a detailed assessment of development and/or conversion pressures and specific recommendations to guide the future of these areas. Council also directed Staff to schedule a public meeting to receive feedback from residents on the draft Interim Control Bylaw and other policy changes that could achieve development objectives and to report back to Council with options/recommendations in April of 2017.
