221 Allan Street
File: OPA 1612.13 and Z.1612.13
Staff Report: Item No. 15 on the Planning and Development Council Agenda for Wednesday, October 11, 2017


The purpose of these applications is to facilitate changes in land use as endorsed by Town Council through the South Central Public Lands Study - a comprehensive land use study, completed in 2013 that evaluated options for four town-owned properties. This property is owned by the town, portions of which will be sold.


October 11, 2017 — Council received comments from the public on the town-initiated official plan and zoning amendments for the site, as part of the statutory public meeting.

These draft amendments consider the implementation of the Council-endorsed development concept as provided through the South Central Public Lands Study from April 2013.

The public is welcome to view and comment on the proposed amendments before they go back to Council for final approval, tentatively scheduled for December 4, 2017.   View Item 15 in the October 10, 2017 Planning and Development Council Agenda for the staff report and amendments.


The Brantwood School property was purchased by the town upon being declared surplus by the Halton District School Board. Council approved a concept plan for the site and directed staff to bring forward proposed amendments to provide for:

  • development of seven detached residential lots fronting onto Douglas Avenue
  • relocation of the playground to the corner of Douglas Avenue and Palmer Avenue
  • retention of the historic portion of Brantwood School, if feasible, for a residential conversion consisting of four to nine apartment units

The proposed parkland at the southern area of the site is part of an overall parkland strategy to meet the needs of the community.
