How will this project impact the study area?

    This project aims to provide direction on how the study area can grow through an Official Plan Amendment that will introduce a new Secondary Plan and possibly zoning amendments. Secondary Plan Policies could provide guidance on appropriate land uses and building heights, built form, and enhancements to the public realm and active transportation connections.

    What are Secondary Plan Policies?

    The City of Ottawa’s Official Plan provides a vision for the future growth of the city and a policy framework to guide the City's physical development. Ottawa’s Official Plan includes Secondary Plan that provide more detailed guidance that adapts Official Plan policies to a local context.

    Typically, Secondary Plan policies include direction on land uses, building heights, densities, particular design requirements for buildings or sites, new connectivity requirements, and public realm improvements. The policies address changes in a specific area within a planning horizon of 20 years.
