1) Written Delegation
Magnitude of the development proposal
Change to the character of Bronte Village & quality of life for surrounding community
Non-conformance to Livable Oakville Plan & Zoning By-laws
# of Storeys, Height, Shadowing, Traffic, Parking, Excavation, Construction
The developer seeks 15 storeys and 50.5m in height 237% more than the maximum allowed height of 15m. This creates negative shadowing effects to the west and south affecting 88 vulnerable seniors at OSCR and longstanding residents at the Lighthouse. It also impedes privacy and blocks village views and connections to the surrounding area affecting the quality of life.
Bronte Village is a historic area and Lakeshore Road is a historic route. Growth should support these precepts and maintain the unique character of Bronte Village and aid revitalization that is reasonable and safe for the community.
2) Written Delegation
Safety: Line of Sight for Parking Access & Traffic
Oakville`s vision through the Active Transportation Master Plan is applied by “ensuring that every street accommodates pedestrians and cyclists.¨ Safety for pedestrians and cyclists is impacted by increased traffic and setback of less than 3m along East Street from the sidewalk diminishes sightlines even with an urban square.
3) Written Delegation
The developer seeks 20% reduction in the minimum parking requirement for an area already impacted by inadequate parking and predatory towing.
