Public Information Session: Tues. May 5th 6:30pm at the Firehall
If you look at the new houses on our streets, there are ones that fit in and ones that stand out because their massiveness dwarfs the surrounding houses. But these houses often meet the current zoning by-laws (ZBL).
Many residents have spoken out about this, objecting to the height, rear-yard setbacks, mass, invasion of privacy, and diminished sunlight. Residents have presented their objections at the Committee of Adjustment and at the Ontario Municipal Board. Some residents have even hired expensive professional expertise to guide them or represent their case.
Despite all these objections, uncharacteristic developments were, and are, still allowed.
