Site plan application submitted for 730 & 760 Brant St.

730 & 760 Brant 2Public Meeting #2: Tues., Sept. 22, 7 p.m., 760 Brant St.

Cherishome Living has submitted a formal site plan application for the redevelopment of 730 Brant St., and the southerly portion of 760 Brant St. (Site Plan – 730 & 760 Brant Street).

I will be hosting a second public meeting to give residents an opportunity to view the revised plans and provide feedback:

Date: Tues., Sept. 22, 2015
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: 760 Brant St.

The applicant will present their formal plans and city planner, Charles Mulay, will go over the planning process and timelines.

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.

The application fits within the existing Official Plan. Some minor amendments to the zoning regulations may have to go before the Committee of Adjustment for approval. Residents within 60m will receive a letter in the mail from the Committee of Adjustment if minor variances are necessary. City planning and zoning staff are still reviewing the application to determine what, if any, minor variances will be necessary.

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.
