“It’s a community facility that is including a temple, it’s including an area for congregation and meals, it’s including a living space for the priests (maybe four to six) that live there,” said Bechard.
 
According to a presentation by Weston Consulting, a local official plan amendment and zoning bylaw amendment will be required to permit the proposed Hindu temple, Toronto Star News reported.
