Council Update, Shadow Studies, Engagement to Date

Council Direction

On Wednesday July 21, Council voted to direct staff to prepare the Streamlining Rental by-law amendments for consideration of referral to public hearing in Q4 of 2021. The public hearing will provide a final opportunity for members of the public to speak to Council or submit comments on the proposed changes. If approved at public hearing, the changes would come into effect in late fall and applications for new rental projects could then be submitted.


To see the Streamlining Rental update to Council, refer to Appendix B of the Vancouver Quick Starts Action Council Report.


Engagement to Date and Shadow Studies

New boards have been posted detailing the update on the engagement to date including the themes from the virtual information sessions held in June, and the shadow studies for both RS/RT and C-2 areas. Example sites and building options have been selected to show the most typical types of rental buildings expected to be built, and those that would generally create the greatest shadow impacts.
