Due to the COVID-19 emergency, attendance at Town Hall is restricted and public meetings are being held by videoconference only. Instructions on how to view the meeting or participate by written submission, videoconference or telephone are provided below.
The purpose of the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to modify the text and schedules of the Livable Oakville Plan pertaining to the Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area to implement the findings of the Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area Study, undertaken as part of the town’s Official Plan Review.
The Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area comprises a land area of approximately 146 hectares around the Bronte GO Station. The subject lands are generally bound by the QEW to the north, 14 Mile Creek to the east, the established residential community to the south, and Westgate Road and the Employment Area to the west.
The effect of the proposed amendment to the Livable Oakville Plan is to:
• update the general policies and schedules to identify the Bronte GO station, and surrounding lands, as a protected Major Transit Station Area and a strategic growth area
• introduce area-specific policies for the protected Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area, including a goal, objectives and development concept, as well as functional, urban design, land use, park and open space, and implementation policies, to enable redevelopment that is contextually appropriate
• update the policies pertaining to the Speers Road Corridor Special Policy Area which would no longer apply to the area forming part of the protected Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area
• introduce a land use, building height, density, transportation, and urban design schedule for the protected Bronte GO Major Transit Station Area
