Next up: province will remove heritage rules when an MZO is made.
That’s my guess.
They will, because their latest proposal is to remove Site Plan Approval for MZOs. This means that the city won't be able to control any aspect of the development. This literally means that city planning will have ZERO control over all these developments and developers will be able to do whatever the hell they want.This is snark, but it may have a grain of truth. Did the province try for demolition because it didn’t want to risk dealing with Toronto heritage planning?
Put it another way: how long would it take to get heritage preservation services to sign off on a project here? What would it look like? Does anybody know the answers? I follow these things very closely, and I wouldn’t begin to guess.
That seems like a problem.
