Historic Area Height Review Update: Policy Implementation

On January 26, 2010, Council made decisions on height and related matters in the Historic Area (Gastown, Chinatown, Victory Square, Main and Hastings) and directed staff to bring forward implementing policy and by-law amendments to formalize their decisions as well as report back on other requested work. In response, staff will bring forward a report entitled “Historic Area Height Review: Policy Implementation” to the Standing Committee on Planning & Environment on Thursday, January 20, 2011. This report is now available for viewing on the Planning Department's website, at the following link:

This Historic Area Height Review report will be considered by Council along with the recommendations of the related study "Vancouver Views" and Opportunities for Higher Buildings in the Downtown. Staff will provide a joint presentation on the two reports and Council will hear from public delegations on both items before making a decision.

You can find out more about the Historic Area Height Review and the Vancouver Views study, including a summary of Council's decisions from their January 26, 2010 meeting, at the following websites:
