Strategy and rationale forpreserving the character of Ossington
Approximately a dozen Official Plan Area Specific Policies preserve thesmall-scale character of various regions of Toronto
The OCA believes Council should enact a similar OPA to preserve theexisting small-scale and lowrise character of Ossington
This OPA is justifiable on the grounds of (a) the centrality of Ossington forsustaining Toronto
s Cultural Dynamism (b) the historical significance of Ossington to Toronto
s past
 –
This document will be concerned with (a); in particular with thephenomenological impact of urban places on gathering together in a mindsetconducive to creativity
 –
(b) will be addressed in future discussion
The existing application for midrise intensification could be rejected onplanning grounds without violating the Clergy Principle
 –
The OP provides no positive reason to intensify Ossington (2.2P2); the OPprovides ample opportunities to accommodate results of post-applicationstudy in weighing applications (2.2.3P3); the preservationist goals of the OPAwould be undermined by further midrise intensification; OMB decisions suchas BSW Development (PL090733) support otherwise permissible rejection onsuch
undermining
grounds.
