Bronte Village Growth Area
Posted December 27, 2015
On September 28, 2015, the BVRA attended a meeting at Town Hall on behalf of the community to engage the planning department and Ward 1 Councillors on the Bronte Growth Review process, the development process through site applications and timelines and specific questions regarding both in relation to Ward 1. The report raises a number of questions and issues brought to our attention by members and residents over the course of the year.
Bronte is one of six growth areas in Oakville and we would like to ensure that as members you are aware of the process, how you can engage on the Town of Oakville's website and where to find the planning directions that will be presented before council for approval. You can sign-up for updates on the Bronte Growth Review. We will also be providing updates as they are released through planning services.
We have received an update from the Planning Dept. of the Town of Oakville indicating that the deadline to provide comments on the planning directions to council regarding the Bronte Growth Review is January 4th, 2016.
We are particularly concerned that an open and transparent process through public notification and engagement is negatively impacted by the deadline of January 4th, 2016 which is placed ahead of a number of key milestones critical to the process as a whole. Full details attached.
