Oak Bay opens input on a plan for an Oliver Street property with a public hearing set for July 14.

The proposal is to allow subdivision of 1391 Oliver to create a second single-family home while preserving the existing home and its heritage values through a heritage designation bylaw.

The proposed zone would address lot area and lot width requirements, the front and side yard setbacks, maximum roof height and occupiable height, floor area ratio, and parking to retain the existing home. The proposed new vacant lot on the southern portion of the property would conform to the existing RS-5 zone.

A copy of the bylaws and staff reports are available online at
