The proposed application is to remove the Holding Provision from Zoning By-laws 1984-63 and 2014-014 as amended. The “H” Holding Provision was placed on these lands to ensure that:

  1. Halton Region’s Commissioner of Planning and Public Works, or his or her designate, is satisfied that:
    (i) water and wastewater infrastructure is available to service the lands; and
    (ii) updates to the Functional Servicing Report or a detailed design submission have been provided; and
    (iii) the Owner has entered into any necessary servicing agreement(s) with Halton Region.
  2. The Town of Oakville is satisfied that:
    (i) the consolidation of land ownership within the development block has occurred in conformity with the Official Plan of the Town of Oakville;
    (ii) for each development block within the area bounded by Dorval Drive, Lakeshore Road West, Maurice Drive and Rebecca Street (the “area”), a block plan has been submitted illustrating such matters as the proposed location of dwellings, access and roads or laneways, on site parking and amenity areas and traffic circulation patterns and future connections with the adjacent development block;
    (iii) a Traffic Impact Study has been approved by the Town reviewing the effect of the proposed development on the functioning of the transportation network. Any such improvements associated with each development block must be secured prior to or coincident with the development of the lands; and
    (iv) legal access for adjacent development blocks over any laneways forming part of the development has been secured.”

The removal of the “H” Holding Provision is a mechanism to ensure that the above conditions are fulfilled prior to the development of the lands in accordance with the approved Zoning, and as such there are no third party rights of appeal on the removal of the Holding Provision.

Generally bounded by Lakeshore Road West, Garden Drive, Maurice Drive and Rebecca Street.

A portion of these lands are also subject to Site Plan Applications SP.1617.054/01, SP.1617.055/01 and a Zoning By-law Amendment Z.1617.42.
