The City of Pickering is undertaking the Study to determine how to manage infill and replacement housing construction in established neighbourhoods within the South Pickering Urban Area. The Study is now in its third and final phase.
There will be a short pre-recorded presentation by the project team at 2:30 pm followed by an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the Draft Planning Recommendations Report and Draft Urban Design Guidelines (the key deliverables of Phase 3 of the Study). You are encouraged to review the Draft Planning Recommendations Report on the City’s website at pickering.ca/InfillStudy prior to the electronic meeting.
The Draft Planning Recommendations Report provides the analysis of the Preferred Strategy proposed in Phase 2 of the Study and proposes detailed recommendations for the City to address compatibility of new infill and replacement housing in established residential neighbourhoods.
Your comments will inform the staff report to the Planning & Development Committee meeting on September 14, 2020. Separate notification will be provided in advance of this meeting.
Your comments and/or questions regarding the Draft Planning Recommendations Report can be forwarded to:
