Cudmore Garden Lands

LPAT Appeal

PL200232

3171 Lakeshore Rd West

Protect Stable Residential Neighbourhoods

Vogue (Wycliffe) Ltd filed a development application for 3-storey 27 condo townhouses and 8 semi-detached houses in November 2019 effectively looking to impose medium-high density in a low-density residential neighbourhood.

 

The area is currently zoned for 17 units; 2-storey 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 still not final or ratified after the 3rd CMC hearing on February 24th, 2021.

Please submit your participant statements to the BVRA by March 1st, 2021 to be aggregated and submitted to the Tribunal by March 8th, 2021.

Cudmore LPAT Appeal Community Engagement

BVRA Zoom community Update on Cudmore Garden Lands LPAT Appeal - February 16th, 2021

Thank you to all attendees for your support and ideas - a great conversation!

Key Take-Aways

  1. What is motivating council and in particular our two Ward 1 councillors? 

  2. Why are the Livable Oakville Plan and Zoning by-laws not implemented and defended consistently?

  3. Why are there extensive meetings with developers and so little community engagement in the planning process?

  4. There appears to be an issue of lack of transparency and consistency at council and in the planning department.

  5. We understand the province drives the planning process - need to engage our MPP as well as the municipality. [The BVRA will reach out to MMP Stephen Crawford concerning limited public engagement in LPAT Appeal process]

  6. We need more public engagement and need to utilize print media to spread the word. [BVRA has & will continue to reach out to online and print media]

  7. Does the BVRA have an independent land planning expert? [BVRA has reached out to an independent planner to explore how best to support advocacy concerning development applications and policy reviews]

Please find a copy of the presentation below for those who could not attend and we ask you to consider the next steps in the community engagement campaign. Strength in numbers so that our Members of Council can hear and heed community concerns.
