Unfortunately, Councillors on the Toronto and East York Community Council decided to defer making a decision on laneway suites until the June 6, 2018 Community Council meeting and has asked City staff to report back on affordability and to consider a variety of zoning requirements.
You can review the report that City staff brought forward recommending the implementation of laneway suites in the Toronto and East York District for yourself by clicking here. City staff also presented to Community Council and you can view their presentation by clicking here.
I would like to thank the hundreds of residents who wrote directly to Community Council to express their support for laneway suites and those who attended today's meeting to explain in person why they support laneway suites in Toronto. I would also like to thank the thousands of Torontonians who have provided their time, energy and ideas over the last two years through numerous community consultations and feedback opportunities to help craft sensible and responsible guidelines for laneway suites that respect our residential neighbourhoods and enable the creation of more rental housing.
