Encouraging the Growing of Food in Urban Areas - City Wide

What is proposed?

Amendments to the London Plan and Zoning By-law to make it easier to grow food in the urban area in accordance with the Urban Agriculture Strategy, which was adopted by Council in November 2017. This project focuses on the “Growing” component of the Strategy and is being considered under the Strategy’s guiding principle to develop supportive municipal policies, regulations, and bylaws, and remove policy barriers to urban agriculture. The intent of the changes is to expand the permissions for urban greenhouses, consider policies and regulations to permit growing of food in most place types and zones, and review application process requirements for urban agriculture. Other City Departments, interested agencies, urban agriculture interest groups and the general public will be consulted before changes are made.
