Coun. Colleen Hardwick wants to overturn the last major and one of the most contentious decision by the previous Vision Vancouver-dominated city council. It involved the mass rezoning of 99 percent of all 68,000 lots zoned as single-family properties to allow duplexes. Hardwick has filed a motion to have the measure “referred to public hearing for reconsideration by Council at the earliest date possible”.
According to her, there was “no meaningful public consultation” before the rezoning was sent to public hearing.

Hardwick’s motion is included in the agenda of the first regular meeting of the new council on Tuesday (November 13).
When the matter was considered in a public hearing in September, Hardwick, then a candidate for council with the Non-Partisan Association (NPA), signed up to speak.
Addressing council, Hardwick said that the “sweeping” bylaw changes are being made without public consultation and community input.
