What is a Secondary Plan?

Secondary Plans form part of the Official Plan and provide more specific policies than the policies of the existing Official Plan for a particular area. Secondary Plans allow for a comprehensive study of the secondary plan area, considering the other policies in the Official Plan. They allow for a coordinated planning approach for the secondary plan area and the opportunity to provide more detailed policy guidance for the area that goes beyond the general policies of the Official Plan.

Why are we doing a Secondary Plan for the lands around Victoria Park?

The Victoria Park Secondary Plan is a City-initiated planning study to develop a secondary plan for the properties surrounding Victoria Park. The existing vision for the lands surrounding Victoria Park is varied, with potential future development of properties surrounding the park being directed by different policy and guideline documents. The lands surrounding the park have not been considered comprehensively based on their shared relationship with the Park, despite the role of Victoria Park as a prominent City-wide park for the City of London.

At its meeting of May 8, 2018, City Council directed Staff to undertake a review of the existing policies, plans and guidelines applying to properties surrounding Victoria Park and to consider a comprehensive plan for their development. Staff have hired a planning consulting firm, Urban Strategies, to assist with undertaking this study.

The intention of the Victoria Park Secondary Plan is to provide a comprehensive plan for the properties surrounding the park, to allow for a proactive and coordinated approach for the review of any future development applications.

The Secondary Plan is for the lands around Victoria Park. It will not consider programming within Victoria Park or the design of the park itself.
