Item not to be heard before 5:00 p.m.
Repeal of Building By-law B-6/Proposed Building By-law B-7 – The current Building By-law B-6 was enacted by Council in November 2012. A recent comprehensive review of the current By-law resulted in an opportunity to propose revisions that will result in a more efficient service delivery. New definitions are proposed, new fee categories have been introduced and existing fee categories have been consolidated making the new By-law simpler to administer. A permit fee increase, as a result of a fee analysis, and annual permit fee indexing are also proposed. As a result, the current Building By-law (B-6) will be repealed and replaced by the proposed (B-7) By-law. The proposed by-law was ‘tabled’ at the April 15, 2019 meeting of the Planning and Environment Committee (PEC). More information and links to the Planning and Environment reports from April 15, 2019 can be found on the City of London website http://www.london.ca/business/Permit-Licences/Building-Permits/Pages/Building-by-law.aspx Questions related this matter may be addressed to Peter Kokkoros, P.
