Bronte Creek Provincial Park Oakville Development

A new housing development abutting Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville is one step closer.

Earlier this month, Oakville Town Council amended a local bylaw to permit low density residential development on a private road instead of public road as well as clarify how the minimum transit supportive density target within 400 metres of Bronte Road is applied.

The effect of the application would be to permit redevelopment of part of the ‘Bronte Road West Lands’ with a low density and medium density subdivision consisting of 82 single-detached dwellings and 86 townhouse dwellings and one Heritage house.

The piece of land is on the west side of Regional Road 25 (Bronte Rd.), north of the QEW and south of Upper Middle Rd.

Any appeals to the proposed official plan amendment must be filed with the Town Clerk, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON, L6H 0H3, setting out the reasons for the appeal, and the specific part of the proposed official plan amendment to which the appeal applies. It also must be accompanied by the fee required by the Ontario Land Tribunal. A copy of the appeal form is available from the Ontario Land Tribunal website.

The proposed official plan amendment is exempt from approval by the Regional Municipality of Halton. The decision of the Town of Oakville Council is final if a notice of appeal is not received on or before the last day for filing a notice of appeal.

The public may view planning documents and background material online by visiting the development application page.

Questions may be directed to Colin Westerhof, Planner, Planning Services department at 905-845-6601, ext. 3045, or at [email protected].

Last date for filing a notice of appeal is Dec. 11.
