Data currency comments

The extract for this dataset is updated weekly. There may be no change in data content from one week to the next because there is no change in source data. Priorities and resources will also determine how fast a change in reality is reflected in the database.

Data set description

Building lines, as described in Schedule "E" of the Zoning and Development Bylaw, regulate building placement on affected lots to allow for potential long-term street widening or, in some cases, preservation of open spaces. Generally, development is prohibited within that portion of the lot covered by the building line and additional building setbacks from the building line may be required by the zoning specific to the lot.

Data accuracy comments

The locations should be considered approximations of the true location.
