Queen River Secondary Plan


The Queen-River area is designated Regeneration Areas in the City of Toronto's Official Plan with the exception of a narrow sliver of land abutting Bayview Avenue from Dundas Street East to Queen Street East which is designated Parks. Section 4.7 Policy 2 of the Official Plan states that development should not proceed in Regeneration Areas prior to approval of a Secondary Plan. The City of Toronto is in the process of developing a Secondary Plan for the Queen-River area in accordance with the current Official Plan.

The majority of the Queen-River Area is already developed. As such, it is anticipated that the Queen-River Secondary Plan will be implemented as properties in the area redevelop.
