The Hindu Temple of Ottawa-Carleton has existed at 4835 Bank Street since 1985. Since then, the Temple has catered to the religious and spiritual needs of Ottawa’s Hindu community by providing worship space and religious services performed by Temple staff under the guidance and management of a Board of Trustees.
Our firm was retained by the Hindu Temple of Ottawa-Carleton Ltd. to act as project manager for a new on-site assembly hall, as a standalone building, which will provide the same core services that are currently being provided at the existing Temple, as well as a deity space for worship. The Hindu Temple of Ottawa-Carleton will serve the City of Ottawa’s growing Hindu community.
Although the site’s zoning permits a place of worship, an assembly hall, defined as a place of assembly, is currently not permitted on-site. As such, the proposal requires approval of a Major Zoning By-law Amendment Application to permit the development of an assembly hall, as well as a Site Plan Control Application.
The application is waiting to be heard at the City of Ottawa Planning Committee.
