Series consists of records documenting proposed and initiated amendments to the main text, appendices and schedules of Vancouver's Zoning and Development By-law (No. 3575) and its predecessor Zoning By-law (no. 2516 ). The series does not contain by-law amendments relating to individual properties.
The series consists of inter-departmental and external correspondence; reports to Board of Administration, Council and Standing Committees; and intra-departmental memoranda documenting discussions re: the need for specific amendments, the wording of proposed amendments, and drafts of proposed amendments to the by-law.
The series also includes records documenting the creation and deletion of building lines. As of the passage of By-law no. 3575, this was accomplished by means of revisions to Appendix E of the by-law; before this, building lines were established by Planning Department policy.
