The Great Near-Campus Neighbourhoods Strategy was implemented in 2008 as the City’s approach to addressing land use and development issues in the areas near to London’s major post-secondary institutions. The Strategy includes 10 initiatives and an implementation plan that were intended to close the gaps identified between the collective vision for the near-campus neighbourhoods and existing conditions. The strategy includes a cooperative approach that involves a variety of stakeholders and City departments to address some of the community concerns.
On May 26, 2015 City Council approved Terms of Reference for a review of the 2008 strategy. The purpose of the review is to examine the changing planning and neighbourhood contexts, review the effectiveness of the Strategy and other initiatives that have been implemented, establish a new collective vision for the near-campus neighbourhoods, and determine what policies or processes are appropriate to close the gap between existing conditions and the collective vision. This review will ensure that all appropriate actions are taken to make the near-campus neighbourhoods great.
