Welcome to the Mount Pleasant Planning, Transportation & Land Use Blog

We have set up this "blog" as a way to communicate more effectively with our community members.

We plan to post items that are brought to our attention to inform residents, but also to seek their opinions and allow them to exchange ideas with each other.

If you have an issue that you would like see posted feel free to leave a comment below and we can set up an article on it.

Highland Park – Land Use Amendment and Outline Plan Application

Regional Drainage Study Update

The City is conducting a comprehensive regional drainage study for the Confederation Creek catchment area. Once complete, this regional drainage study will mitigate existing drainage issues within the catchment area and inform the proposed development on the former Highland Park golf course lands.

  • Early findings initially identified four possible options. Options 1 and 2 are not viable solutions, while Options 3 and 4 are being further explored and refined.
  • The final report is expected in Fall 2018. The City will have more information once the report and technical analyses have been completed.
  • Construction cannot occur until the appropriate storm water management solutions for the entire catchment area are identified and implemented.
  • Confederation Regional Drainage Study – Early Findings were presented to Council on January 29, 2018.

Secondary Suite Process Reform

City Council directed Administration to bring forward amendments to the Land Use By-law to include secondary suites as discretionary uses within the R-1, R-C1, and R-C1L land use districts no later than the public hearing on 2018 March 12. Proposed amendments also impact The City’s Suite Registry Program.

The Secondary Suites hub provides information on the rules for building secondary suites as well as information on permits and safety.

Contextual Dwellings

​Contextual single and semi-detached dwellings are listed as permitted uses in the developed area. In contrast to discretionary applications, contextual dwellings cannot be refused by The City or appealed by the public, so long as the design meets the contextual rules in the Land Use Bylaw. This allows applications to proceed faster and at a lower cost to applicants. Add a comment
