Ontario Land Tribunal Hearing Scheduled for the proposed “Abbotts” Subdivision in Thornbury

Posted On: Friday, May 20, 2022

The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public that beginning Tuesday, May 24, 2022, the Town will be party to an Ontario Land Tribunal hearing regarding the proposed “Abbotts” Subdivision in Thornbury. While the hearing is likely to touch on a variety of issues, including those related to the design and servicing of the subdivision, the Town’s participation will be focused on issues related to the provision of attainable housing.

Ontario Land Tribunal Hearing Scheduled for the proposed “Abbotts” Subdivision in Thornbury

The Abbotts Subdivision proposal seeks to create twelve (12) lots for twenty (20) total residential units. Four (4) lots would be created for four (4) units of single detached dwellings and eight (8) lots for sixteen (16) units of semi-detached dwellings.

Access to the lots would be from extensions of Bay Street West and Victoria Street North. The new road extensions are proposed to be a one-way road. The proposed subdivision would be serviced by municipal water and sewer services.

An associated Zoning By-law Amendment Application proposed to rezone the subject lands from the Residential One (R1-1) zone to the Residential Two (R2)  one to permit the semi-detached dwellings.

Please be advised that these applications have been appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT), File numbers PL210152 and PL210156. Beginning Tuesday, May 24, 2022, the Town will be party to an Ontario Land Tribunal hearing regarding the proposed “Abbotts” Subdivision in Thornbury. While the hearing is likely to touch on a variety of issues, including those related to the design and servicing of the subdivision, the Town’s participation will be focused on issues related to the provision of attainable housing.

Specifically, the Town is asking that the 20-unit development include six units which conform to the affordability parameters set out in the County of Grey Official Plan and Provincial Policy Statement.
