730 & 760 Brant St. – Sept. 22 notes and presentations

Over 60 residents attended a second public meeting on Sept. 22 to view revised plans for the redevelopment of 730 & 760 Brant St. by Cherishome Living. The PowerPoint presentation and notes from the meeting are below.

The revised site plan application was submitted to the City’s Planning & Building Department in June 2015 and Cherishome has been working with city staff to address questions and concerns. The application is similar to what residents were presented with at the April 15th public meeting:  a 4-storey building with 146 residential units and 7 commercial units along Brant Street. One significant change is the driveway location has moved to Brant Street, whereas the preliminary drawings showed the driveway on Hyde Road.

Questions related to the site plan application can be directed to planner Charles Mulay, at

The plan includes some minor variances to the City’s zoning regulations and Cherishome has applied to the Committee of Adjustment to seek approval of those variances. An Oct 2015 hearing date was postponed to allow for city staff and the applicant to work through parking and transportation matters. A new hearing date is planned for early next year. Residents within 60m of 730 & 760 Brant St. will receive a letter in the mail advising of the application and how you can get involved. A list of the variances is below. Questions related to the variances can be directed to the secretary to the Committee of Adjustment, Sean Kenney, at

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
