The Planning Services department will be presenting a recommendation report with respect to the proposed zoning by-law amendment at this meeting.

The purpose of the proposed amendment to Town of Oakville Zoning By-law 2014-014, as amended, is to make a number of housekeeping, technical and other modifications to permit accessory patios, which would assist in the use and interpretation of the Zoning By-law and implement the Livable Oakville Plan.

The effect of the amendment to Zoning By-law 2014-014 would be as follows:

Within Part 3, Definitions, the definition of “Public Hall” would be modified.

Part 4, General Provisions, would be modified by:

  • Adding Section 4.18.1, Patios Accessory to Public Halls or Restaurants
  • Adding Section 4.18.2, Patios on Public Roads

At this time there are no other applications, under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended, pertaining to the subject lands.

If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the Town of Oakville to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to Council c/o the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON L6H 0H3 (Dropbox is located in front of Town Hall) or at TownClerk@oakville.ca  before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to Council c/o the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Town of Oakville on the proposed zoning by-law amendment, you must make a written request to the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON L6H 0H3 or at TownClerk@oakville.ca
