On Monday, November 13, 2023, Town Council passed By-law 2023-145, which adopted Official Plan Amendment 061, under section 17(23), of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended.
The purpose of the application is to amend the site-specific ‘Bronte Road West Lands” policies in Town's Official Plan to permit low density residential on a private road instead of public road and clarify how the minimum transit supportive density target within 400 metres of Bronte Road is applied.
The effect of the application would be to permit redevelopment of part of the ‘Bronte Road West Lands’ with a low density and medium density subdivision consisting of 82 single-detached dwellings and 86 townhouse dwellings and one Heritage house.
The subject lands are located on the west side of Regional Road 25 (Bronte Road), north of Highway 403, and south of Upper Middle Road.
This land is also subject to a zoning by-law amendment application (File No. Z.1531.03) and a draft plan of subdivision application (File No. 24T-21009/1531).
Council’s decision reflects that the comments from the public have been appropriately addressed.
Any appeals to the proposed official plan amendment must be filed with the Town Clerk, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON, L6H 0H3, setting out the reasons for the appeal, and the specific part of the proposed official plan amendment to which the appeal applies; and must be accompanied by the fee required by the Ontario Land Tribunal. A copy of the appeal form is available from the Ontario Land Tribunal website.
The proposed official plan amendment is exempt from approval by the Regional Municipality of Halton. The decision of the Town of Oakville Council is final if a notice of appeal is not received on or before the last day for filing a notice of appeal.

No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the plan was adopted, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Land Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
