Staff has been directed by Council to investigate the possibility of the inclusion of a small lot residential zoning within the existing Zoning and Development Bylaw.
Recommendation: THAT the report from the Manager of Current Planning dated July 3, 2008 entitled "Consideration of a Small-Lot Residential Zone", be received;
Council requested that Staff consider the topic of mandating that all future housing projects contain some affordable housing units. Preliminary investigations indicate that some projects would not have the financial capability to do so, which would result in one-off relaxation requests.
