Item 1: Removal of density bonus for energy provision from the zoning bylaw

A Public Hearing for Bylaw 8273 that proposes to delete section 4C03 Density Bonus for Energy Performance and associated references from District of North Vancouver Zoning Bylaw 3210, 1965.

The Zoning Bylaw currently permits a modest increase in floorspace for enhanced energy performance in buildings. The Provincial government has enacted the Building Act and BC Energy Step Code in an effort to standardize building regulations across the Province.

As a result, local regulations that deal with matters addressed in the BC Building Code, such as the District’s Density Bonus for Energy Performance contained in its Zoning Bylaw, will have no effect after December 15, 2017. This bylaw proposes to delete the Density Bonus for Energy Performance provisions from the Zoning Bylaw.
