The O-Train Stage 2 Public Art Program (https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/arts-heritage-and-culture/o-train-public-art) is planning a social practice public art opportunity as part of the O-Train Stage 2 Public Art Program and will engage the communities within and surrounding the Richmond-Byron Corridor and Richmond Road in a beneficial way.

The Byron Richmond Public Art project will engage an artist(s) to work with the community beginning in 2020 through a social engagement process. Through this process, the artist will act as instigator or facilitator to help the community work towards a common goal, raise awareness and/or promote dialogue and collaboration around public art and community priorities.

Please help us to distribute the following survey with your community.

Open House: Highcroft Ave, Churchill Ave & Byron Place Proposed Development

23 05 2019

From the Office of Councillor Jeff Leiper:

*************************************************

433 & 435 Churchill Ave, 468, 470 & 472 Byron Place Development

Zoning By-Law Amendment Application & Site Plan Control + Open House

You may recall that for a while now, we’ve been in the early stages of discussing a proposed development at Churchill Ave and Byron Place. We held a community meeting for this conceptual development in October, the details of which can be found here. The applicants took the community feedback, made some revisions to their plans, and have now formally submitted a Zoning By-Law Amendment Application and Site Plan Control for this development project.

They are proposing a new six-storey mixed-use building with approximately 76 residential units and two at-grade commercial units facing Churchill Ave. The project fronts Churchill Ave, Byron Place as well as Highcroft Ave. The commercial units are designed for pedestrian access from Churchill. An underground parking garage is proposed to have 59 resident parking spaces, 6 visitor spaces and 45 bicycle parking spaces, and will be accessed via Highcroft. Stepbacks are proposed on the building at the fifth and sixth levels along Churchill, with stepbacks after the fourth storey along Byron and Highcroft. Waste collection is proposed to be internal and collected via Churchill.

The development proposal also includes three “parklette” concepts for a section of Byron Place.

More details on this development, including the three “parkelette” concepts can be found on DevApps:

Zoning By-Law Amendment

Site Plan Control 

Now that the applications have been formally submitted, we encourage you to send feedback both to our office (via Jeff.Leiper@Ottawa.ca and/or Fiona.Mitchell@Ottawa.ca) as well as to the lead planner on the file (via Andrew.McCreight@Ottawa.ca). The lead planner has the previously-submitted community comments and they will be taken into consideration, but please review the proposal with the details and consider submitting your comments again. If you want to be on the notification list for this development, you’ll have to resubmit your old comments or send revised comments to Andrew (Andrew.McCreight@Ottawa.ca).

Our office is also hosting another public information session for this development:

Tuesday, June 4 

6:30-8:30pm

Presentation begins at 7:00pm

Churchill Senior’s Centre (Main Hall – gym)

The applicant’s team will be on hand to run through the applications, and the lead planner will be available to field process questions. Jeff will also facilitate a Q + A.

Thank you and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Zoning By-laws

Council approved the new Comprehensive Zoning By-law, which harmonizes the existing 36 zoning by-laws from the former municipalities into one by-law.

For more information about how zoning and planning work in the City, please see Development Review.

How to find current zoning information

Property zoning information is easily accessed through a simple address search leading you to the appropriate section of the by-law. You may also telephone or visit a Development Information Officer (DIO) in any of the City’s Client Service Centres.

  • City Hall Client Service Centre – 613-580-2424, ext. 28333
  • Orléans Client Service Centre – 613-580-2424, ext. 29242
  • Ben Franklin Place Client Service Centre – 613-580-2424, ext. 41250
  • Kanata Client Service Centre – 613-580-2424, ext. 33321
  • Metcalfe (Tuesdays) – 613-580-2424, ext. 20009
  • Kinburn (Wednesdays) – 613-580-2424, ext. 32226
  • North Gower (Thursdays) – 613-580-2424, ext. 31303

If you are selling or refinancing a property, you may need a compliance report, which describes the zoning of a property and comments on whether the current use is permitted. It also indicates any outstanding work orders authorized by the Ontario Building Code, and other information on the property.

How to apply for a change in Zoning or Minor Variance

If you want to develop or build on your property in a way that is not permitted in the current zoning, you can apply for a  Zoning Amendment or a Minor Variance.

If you think there’s a problem

If you think a property is being used in a way that is not permitted in the Zoning By-law, you may file a complaint by calling 3-1-1. The City does zoning inspections and enforces the By-law when it receives complaints. It also undertakes Business Licence inspections to ensure businesses licensed by the City conform to the Zoning By-law.

Got Questions?

Telephone the City of Ottawa at 3-1-1.
