Development and Transportation Projects
Current Development and Transportation Projects
The CCA’s Development Committee keeps us up-to-date on projects in Carlington as well as on those in neighbouring communities that can impact Carlington residents.
Below you will find information on projects awaiting zoning by-law amendments, site plan approvals or completion of construction.
(Information on completed projects can be found on the Archived Development Projects page.)
(Last updated: December 2018) The development proposes the demolition of the existing housing on the property and the construction of two 19-unit, three-storey rental apartment buildings. Each building contains 13 automobile parking spaces with 26 bicycle parking spaces provided in the parking areas and 14 spaces exterior to the buildings.
The development will require a Zoning By-law amendment and a site plan application. The application is in progress; we are awaiting the developer’s response.
(Last updated: December 2018) The City of Ottawa has developed plans to implement Transit Priority Measures along Carling Avenue. These measures are low cost and easily implemented, such as he outside third lane is to be for buses; intersections traffic lights modified for cyclists, cyclist shelter at Carling and Preston. There was an Open House on February 15, 2017.

(Last updated: July 2018) The purpose of the CDP is to establish a vision and planning framework to guide future growth, guide placemaking, enable sustainable modes of transportation and support economic prosperity in the CDP area. It provides guidelines that translate the broad policies of the Official Plan to the neighbourhood level. It is comprised of maps, illustrations and guidelines that, for example, provide direction for future infill development, grassroots economic development initiatives, improving pedestrian and cycling facilities, supporting transit and enhancing the public realm through future implementation of a complete street design.
The CDP and the zoning by-law amendments were approved by City Ccouncil in June 2018.
