Part 6 - Residential Zones (Sections 155-168)

The City of Ottawa Zoning By-law is made available on the web site for information, however confirmation on the zoning provisions should be sought through the City’s development information officers (DIO), by contacting 311 and asking for the DIO for the geographic area in question.

This part contains the Urban and Suburban residential zones that apply to the City and includes:

In the Urban/Suburban area the R1- Residential First Density (detached dwellings), R2- Residential Second Density (two unit dwellings), R3- Residential Third Density (townhouse dwellings), R4- Residential Fourth Density (low rise apartments), R5- Residential Fifth Density (mid/high-rise apartments) and the RM-Mobile Home zone applies to all areas. (By-law 2012-334)

R1 - Residential First Density Zone (Sec. 155-156)

             
             

Purpose of the Zone

The purpose of the R1- Residential First Density Zone is to:

 

(1)

restrict the building form to detached dwellings in areas designated as General Urban Area in the Official Plan;

 

(2)

allow a number of other residential uses to provide additional housing choices within detached dwelling residential areas;

 

(3)

permit ancillary uses to the principal residential use to allow residents to work at home;

 

(4)

regulate development in a manner that is compatible with existing land use patterns so that the detached dwelling, residential character of a neighbourhood is maintained or enhanced; and

 

(5)

permit different development standards, identified in the Z subzone, primarily for areas designated as Developing Communities, which promote efficient land use and compact form while showcasing newer design approaches.

 

155.

(f)

Where “varies” appears, the associated provision is referenced and provided as an additional provision.

 

(2)

   

Lots serviced by private services may require lot sizes larger than that necessary to meet zone provisions in order to accommodate the servicing systems capable of handling the increased levels of water consumption and sewage generation that may be associated with these uses.

 

(3)

   

Despite any other provision of this by-law, retirement homes, converted and rooming houses, converted are prohibited on lands zoned R1 and developed with private services.

R2 - Residential Second Density Zone (Sec. 157-158)

             
             

Purpose of the Zone

The purpose of the R2- Residential Second Density Zone is to:

 

(1)

restrict the building form to detached and two principal unit buildings in areas designated as General Urban Area in the Official Plan;
