This ZA Bulletin is an overview of the standards that take into account 1) whether the building is proposed for new construction or is existing and proposed for alteration; 2) the type of access from the proposed rooms to the street and 3) the type of visual and spatial connection proposed between the ground floor rooms and rooms on the main floor of the unit (usually the floor above the ground floor).
