web1_221208-mrn-publicnotice-publichearing-cityofpittmeadowslogo_1

The City of Pitt Meadows hereby gives notice that an amendment to Zoning Bylaw 2505, 2011 will be considered for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd readings by Council as part of its Council meeting on Tuesday May 14, 2024, starting at 7:00 p.m.

What is the Intent of the Bylaw?

In the fall of 2023, the Province of British Columbia passed legislation that requires local governments to allow more housing density, particularly in single-family neighbourhoods and near transit hubs and corridors. In many Pitt Meadows neighbourhoods, this new legislation will allow for up to three or four small-scale units per single-family or duplex lot, depending on lot size. Properties within 400 metres of a frequent transit stop are allowed up to six units per lot.

The intent of Zoning Amendment Bylaw 2986, 2024 is to amend the City’s Zoning Bylaw to comply with this new housing legislation.

Properties affected are shown on the map to the below.

Up to 3 units

Green: Urban Residential 4 (R-4)
