By-law 2016-249 amends the City of Ottawa Zoning By-law 2008-250. This by-law reduces and in some cases eliminates the minimum number of parking spaces required for development in the inner-urban area and near rapid-transit stations, consistent with the relevant policies of the Official Plan. It will also introduce incidental changes to required aisle widths in parking garages, minimum driveway widths and zoning rules governing car-sharing services. A minimum visitor parking requirement for residential uses is introduced in those parts of the Central Area where visitor rates currently do not apply.


A notice of appeal can be mailed to the City Clerk at 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, K1P 1J1, or by delivering the notice in person, to Ottawa City Hall, at the Information Desk in the Rotunda on the 1st floor, 110 Laurier Avenue West. 

A notice of appeal must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on August 17, 2016.
