Zoning By-law Amendment
The original purpose of town initiated By-law 2021-021 was to amend the Zoning By-law 2014-014 in order to permit a residential building with a maximum height of six storeys and underground parking on Parcel 7 of the Former Public Works Site in accordance with Livable Oakville Part E: Growth Areas, Special Policy Areas and Exceptions Policy 21.6.5. A revised version of By-law 2021-021 passed on February, 8, 2021 did not include a cap on the number of storeys. A further amendment to the Zoning By-law (By-law 2021-154) was passed on December 22, 2021 and is subject to appeal by The Ashton Inc.
The Town has been requested to consider a settlement of the appeal to By-law 2021-154 that would authorize a 9 storey building complying with the 31 metre height limits set through by-law 2021-021 with three storeys subject to bonusing. An option for allowing additional height in the form of an elevator shaft has also been requested.

By-law 2021-154 has been appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal. Case number OLT-22-002121.
