WELCOME TO BRONTE & WARD 1
"From its early beginnings as a shipping depot for wheat and lumber, to its importance as a fishing village and present role as a regional recreational marina, Bronte is a community defined by its strong ties to the Lake Ontario waterfront."

Vogue (Wycliffe) Ltd filed a development application for 27 condo townhouses and 8 semi-detached houses in November 2018 effectively looking to impose medium-high density in a low-density residential neighbourhood. The area is currently zoned for 17 units; single or semi-detached. The community delegated against this proposal in January 2020. Mayor Burton questioned ¨How is this not over-development?¨ The developer appealed the application to the OMB citing no decision from the municipality by the mandated deadline. The hearing is currently set for April 19 - 23, 2021.
The 2nd CMC hearing was held on January 20th, 2021 where the Town of Oakville and the developer announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in efforts toward a settlement. The settlement is not final or ratified and there is a 3rd CMC hearing on February 24th, 2021.
It is crucial to email Members of Council to stop this deal and uphold the Livable Oakville Plan and Zoning By-laws. Go to our Petition page to send your email to Members of Council and help stop the threat to stable residential neighbourhoods. More information on our Current Issues page.

Natural Heritage Systems and water resources.
Despite overwhelming pubic opposition, the bill received Royal Assent on December 7th, 2020 and regulations supporting the bill are slated for 2021.
