Cultural Heritage Special Policy Areas including Erchless Estate
Town-wide and 8 Navy Street and 110-114 King Street (Ward 3)
Town-initiated
File Nos. 42.24.22, OPA.1714.27 and Z.1714.27

Monday, November 4, 2019 at 7 p.m.
Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Council Chamber

You are invited to attend and provide input at this meeting hosted by Planning and Development Council.

The Planning Services department will be presenting a recommendation report with respect to the proposed official plan and zoning by-law amendments, which are intended to support the conservation of cultural heritage special policy areas including the Erchless Estate. The proposed amendments will recognize and continue to permit the existing uses occurring on the Erchless Estate, which are collectively described as a museum, community centre and library (i.e., Oakville Museum and Oakville Historical Society). The existing buildings and structures will also be permitted, and new buildings will not be allowed.

The purpose and effect of the proposed official plan amendment to the Livable Oakville Plan (File OPA.1417.27) is to:

  • Identify the Erchless Estate as one of the “Heritage Conservation Districts/Cultural Heritage Landscapes” on the town’s Urban Structure (Schedule A1 of OPA 15 to the Livable Oakville Plan);
  • Provide the framework to recognize special policy areas for heritage conservation districts and cultural heritage landscapes protected under the Ontario Heritage Act; and,
  • Provide land use designations and policies to support the protection, management and use of the Erchless Estate cultural heritage landscape in a manner that ensures its cultural heritage value or interest and heritage attributes are retained.

The purpose and effect of the proposed zoning by-law amendment (File Z.1714.27) is to regulate the use of the Erchless Estate property, and the erection, location and use of buildings and structures thereon, in a manner that implements the site-specific provisions for the Erchless Estate property in the proposed official plan amendment. It will also replace the existing definition of “museum” in Zoning By-law 2014-014 to recognize multiple types of museums.

The proposed official plan and zoning by-law amendments affect all lands south of Dundas Street and north of Highway 407 (i.e., the lands subject to the Livable Oakville Plan and Zoning By-law 2014-014), and also the Erchless Estate property at 8 Navy Street and 110-114 King Street (on the west side of Navy Street, south of King Street).

At this time there are no other applications, under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended, pertaining to the subject lands.

If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the Town of Oakville to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to Council c/o the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON L6H 0H3 or at TownClerk@oakville.ca  before the proposed official plan amendment is adopted, or the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to Council c/o the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, before the proposed official plan amendment is adopted or the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Town of Oakville on the proposed official plan amendment, or zoning by-law amendment, you must make a written request to the Town Clerk at the Town of Oakville, Clerk’s department, 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville, ON L6H 0H3 or at TownClerk@oakville.ca
