The Plateau-Mont-Royal amends its Zoning By-law (01-277)

In the midst of a housing crisis, the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough in Montreal has recently announced the adoption of a draft regulation amending its Urban Planning Regulation (01-277). These measures aim to strengthen the protection of the rental housing stock, in the face of growing pressures exerted by various factors, notably the conversion of plexes into cottages.

Plateau Mont-Royal: The end of plex conversions to cottages ?

Indeed, among the key changes brought about by this draft regulation is the prohibition of changing the use of a dwelling and merging two dwellings in a duplex or triplex. This decision aims to preserve the integrity of residential buildings and prevent the conversion of dwellings into commercial spaces or single-family homes, which could reduce the availability of accessible rental housing.

An important step in this process is the holding of a public consultation assembly, scheduled for April 9th of 2024. This meeting will allow residents, property owners, stakeholders in the real estate sector, and other stakeholders to learn about the proposed changes and share their comments, concerns, and suggestions.

A response to the housing crisis

In conclusion, the new measures to protect the rental housing stock announced by the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough aim to respond in a proactive and strategic manner to the housing crisis.
