Based on feedback I received from residents, I moved several motions directing the city to improve its response to residential infill construction sites and ensure that our neighbourhoods are protected and respected when undergoing development.
In response, City staff developed a multi-faceted strategy to minimize the negative impacts of residential infill construction and streamline how the City deals with problem properties.
As part of this strategy, Toronto Building has created an infill development website with information on how to be a good neighbour during the construction process and how the city effectively responds to and addresses complaints about construction sites.
Furthermore, if you have concerns about a residential infill development in your neighbourhood, you are now able to find the contact information of the City’s building inspector online here.
