The differences between zoning, enforcement and licensing.
I have spoken to a number of real estate agents and landlords who I know personally, and I get the sense that there is a great deal of misinformation about the proposed changes. Admittedly, some of the reaction is a direct response to ideas that have been forwarded as part of the public consultation phase of the planning process to date. Most of the confusion seems to stem from the difference between “zoning” and “licencing”. Licencing seems to be causing the greatest negative reaction, and understandably so because the initial report lists examples of regulations that COULD be covered by licencing. However, please note that licencing is not being implemented at this time — the current proposed recommendations coming to Council on September 7th relate ONLY to the zoning by-law.
