Update on 2100 Brant St townhouse development proposal; residents request further modifications

Committee of the Whole Sept. 10 received a Confidential Update on National Homes (Brant Inc) appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT, formerly Ontario Municipal Board) regarding their proposed townhouse development at 2100 Brant St.

The recommendation that will head to council Sept. 24 is to “proceed in accordance with the instructions sought in confidential Legal department report L-29-18.” I do not support that recommendation.

In terms of next steps, the application is currently scheduled for a pre-hearing conference with the LPAT on Dec. 18. You can check the status of this application on the LPAT website with the case number: PL180331

The Havendale Advisory Committee of residents in the vicinity of the proposed development intend to seek Party status at the appeal, which allows them to bring evidence, ask questions and make statements during the hearing. The Committee does not support the original proposal, or the revised proposal, and is seeking a scaled back project.  See earlier article: 2100 Brant St revisions

According to information provided by the LPAT, the committee can only seek Party status to the hearing on the day of the prehearing conference.

Others groups or individuals can similarly seek Party or Participant status (Participant status gives the ability only to make a statement at the end of the hearing).

According to the LPAT, the primary purpose of the prehearing is to:
  • identify the issues being raised by the parties involved
  • identify who these parties are and also who the participants will be
  • identify concerns parties/participants they have
  • narrow these issues where possible, and
  • establish a procedural order for the hearing to be scheduled.

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.
