City of Victoria Policy _ Guide Documents related to development
of The Cook Street Village _ Other Areas
In addition to the current guidelines for development of The Cook Street
Village, there are a number of City of Victoria documents that support
the opinion of many that the proposed development should not be allowed
to go ahead. For example, "The Suburban Neighbourhoods (community
plans for Victoria neighbourhoods, including Fairfield)," promotes
the retention of existing housing stock and neighbourhood character.
However, the developer is taking advantage of other City of Victoria
policies outlined in new and existing documents that promote higher densities
if certain criterion are met. For example, the draft "City of Victoria
Density Bonus Policy" allows for higher densities if property developers
incorporate an aspect that is seen to benefit the community.
You can access some of these documents by clicking
here. The following documents are compiled into a PDF file (approximately
2.7 MB in size):
- City of Victoria Density Bonus Policy
- City of Victoria Public Art Policy
- City of Victoria Social Planning Development Review Guidelines
