Public Meeting - Battery Neighbourhood

Thu, 2021/05/27 - 7:00pm
Residents and property owners in the Battery neighbourhood are invited to a public meeting to talk about the planning and heritage policies and regulations proposed for the neighbourhood.
The Battery is part of Heritage Area 3, which covers much of the old city. Under a new Heritage By-Law, we propose a Heritage Area 4 just for the Battery, to better reflect the way the Battery has houses on small lots, often simple in style, and in a prominent position along the flanks of Signal Hill overlooking the harbour. As well, the new Envision St. John’s Municipal Plan and Development Regulations, 2021 propose maximum lot area and height limits in the zoning, but also recognize the legal problems involved with trying to protect private views rather than public views.
Our meeting is to discuss these matters and is aimed at residents and property owners. We hope to have a good discussion.
