Floor Area Review - Public Consultation

February 16, 2015

Oak Bay is reviewing the Zoning Bylaw regulations governing single-family dwellings on residential lots zoned RS-4 and RS-5. As a result, Oak Bay is considering allowable floor area, massing controls, setbacks, and other guidelines that will impact how homes may be built or renovated in the future.

Prior input opportunities were held on December 11, 2013, and April 23, 2014 where general ideas and recommendations were gathered, and those comments have been used to help craft a draft report of potential regulation changes.

Two additional public review sessions are now planned for February 18th and 21st and these sessions will include the opportunities for the public to be informed on the draft report and provide further input.

Both session times are open to the public:

Session 1: February 18, 2015     6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.  Oak Bay Recreation Centre (Sports View Lounge)

Session 2: February 21, 2015     1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Oak Bay Recreation Centre (Sports View Lounge)

Each session will present the Floor Area Review Report with public Q & A and discussions to follow each session.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Attendees are encouraged (but not required) to RSVP to Krista Mitchell, Building and Planning Department,  (250) 598-2042 or kmitchell@oakbay.ca
