City of Ottawa is developing a site alteration by-law to regulate
activities such as the clearing and grading of land, including the
removal of topsoil and the dumping of
fill. Staff have produced a Discussion Paper to:
some basic background information on site alteration and site
alteration by-laws in Ontario, and the current situation in Ottawa.
Explain the guiding principles under which Ottawa's site alteration by-law is being developed
Consider the circumstances under which site alteration may or may not be appropriate; and,
Identify some potential minimum standards / best practices for site alteration.
After reading this paper, we hope that interested stakeholders and
members of the public will join the discussion and help define
appropriate parameters for site alteration activities in Ottawa. Please provide your feedback by August 5for
consideration during the development of the draft by-law. For more
