Ottawa City Council approves Hazelview’s Official Plan Amendment Application for Redevelopment of Heron Gate

Today, Ottawa City Council approved Hazelview’s Official Plan Amendment application for the redevelopment of Heron Gate. This decision is an important milestone towards realizing the vision for Heron Gate to co-create a complete, vibrant, diverse and sustainable community that enhances the quality of life for residents, visitors and neighbours, while harmonizing with surrounding communities.

With the approval of the Official Plan Amendment, the Heron Gate redevelopment will move forward as Canada’s first community to be modeled after the Conference Board of Canada’s Community Wellbeing Framework. Additionally, the approval will enable one of the largest commitments to affordable housing from the private sector within the City of Ottawa.
