Owner: John Welton Custom Homebuilding Ltd.
Agent: Loft Planning Inc., Kristine Loft
Project Proposal: This application proposal is to remove the holding provision from Block 181, Plan 51M-945 to allow for the Site Plan Application for a block within the Pretty River Estates registered plan of subdivision consisting of 8 Semi-detached and 82 Townhouses within a common element condominium arrangement, including private road, parking, and shared amenity space. The development proposal is within the context of recent Ontario Land Tribunal approvals for an OPA and ZBA applicable to the subject lands (June 30, 2021 – OLT Case No. PL171461). The subject lands are municipally and legally addressed as 17 Portland Street, and Block 181, Plan 51M-945. The applicant has also applied for a Condominium Exemption under the project number PRCEX2022095. The approved zoning is R3-60 (H-19), and the approved designation is Low Medium Density Residential Exception Two (per the Ontario Land Tribunal approval).
Senior Planner Bryan provided an overview of the application, noted that this request is administrative in nature to remove the holding symbol from 17 Portland Street, which was previously approved for development pending certain conditions being met. All conditions have now been fulfilled including confirmation of adequate and functional water services, with a recommendation to remove the holding symbol.
