Purpose and Effect of the Applications:

The Municipality is seeking input on a development application within 120 metres of your property.

The balance of the land is a total of 9.22 ha (22.8 ac) and is proposed for parkland, open space, and ecological and natural heritage open space. 

The purpose and effect of the Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the lands from the existing ‘Restricted Agricultural (A2)’, ‘Urban Residential First Density exception 11 (UR1-11)’, and ‘Urban Residential First Density (UR1)/Urban Residential Third Density exception 4 (UR3-4)’ zones to the following site specific zones: 

  • ‘Urban Residential First Density exception 25 (UR1-25)’ which is consistent with adjacent zoning that permits single detached dwellings;
  • ‘Urban Residential Third Density exception x (UR3-x)’ which permits single detached, semi-detached and townhouse dwellings;
  • ‘Open Space (OS)’ which permits parks and the conservation of the woodland areas; and,
  • ‘Parks and Recreation (PR)’ which would permit parks and places of recreation.
