The City of Ottawa has begun a second phase of study regarding infill in mature neighbourhoods. The City will look at issues such as the disproportionate height, mass and scale of most infill developments.
You have the opportunity to permit City Planning Department staff to have access to your property in order to assess the size of your house or the size of the house adjacent to yours.
Based on Council’s direction, city planning staff will begin to scope a study of zoning heights and setbacks in the infill study area, which includes Old Ottawa South.
To properly assess the impacts of the heights and setbacks of new infill construction, staff will need to visit numerous properties within the study area and will also require access to private property.
If you would like Planning staff to see your house or an adjacent house, and are willing to grant access to your property, please contact selma [DOT] hassan [AT] ottawa [DOT] ca by July 27th, 2012.
