Residential Conversions

The City of Ottawa has officially launched a zoning study of residential “conversions”. This study, along with the interim control bylaw prohibiting some types of conversions, is being carried-out in response to considerable public pressure. Over the last few years Action Sandy Hill has worked closely with Councillor Mathieu Fleury on this issue and we are grateful for his efforts along with many others for bringing about the interim control bylaw. We encourage all residents of Sandy Hill to participate in the public consultations when they are announced and to send your comments in writing to the planner responsible for this study.
