The purpose of the study is to review the permitted land uses, density and development standards along the Sheppard Avenue West segment of the Sheppard Avenue Commercial Area Secondary Plan (SACASP).

The review of the Sheppard Avenue Commercial Area Secondary Plan (SACASP) was initiated by North York Community Council via a motion from the local ward councilor. Community Council directed City Planning to update the existing Secondary Plan to facilitate development, which provides for a mix of residential and retail uses and appropriate standards to protect adjacent neighbourhoods.
