The city has filed an application to re-zone five hectares of land on the Central Experimental Farm to be used for the future Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital.

In a filing on Friday, the city said it wants to amend the Official Plan to re-designate the parcel of land from "agricultural research area" to "general urban area" and relinquish the green space from the farm.

(...)The city noted that "due to the city wide draw" for facilities like hospitals, the new Civic campus needs to be located near arterial roads and rapid transit stations. The future hospital site will be within 100 metres of the Trillium Line's Carling LRT station.
