Members of London City Council:
Re: Affordable Housing – Planning Tools to Support Development of Affordable Housing (Item 2.1, 16th Meeting of the Planning and Environment Committee, Oct. 29, 2018)
Architectural Conservancy Ontario – London Region (ACO London) applauds the above report from City Planner John Fleming on the development of tools to promote affordable housing and regenerate city neighbourhoods. ACO London would, however, like to see more emphasis placed on the preservation of existing housing stock. Preserving our older homes, instead of demolishing them, provides significant environmental, cultural and economic benefits to the city and its neighbourhoods.
