(October 25, 2017) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District

Summary

These applications propose to amend the former City of North York Zoning By-law No. 7625 and to seek Draft Plan of Subdivision approval to develop a new residential neighbourhood on the former St. Gasper Catholic School site at 111 Plunkett Road, formerly part of 135 Plunkett Road. This extension to the surrounding neighbourhood would be comprised of 21 residential semi-detached building lots (42 dwellings), a new public walkway and a new public road. The proposed buildings would be three storeys and range in height from 8.8 to 10 metres.

 

The Draft Plan of Subdivision application proposes to establish a new public road, public walkway and residential development blocks. The new public road would provide access to Plunkett Road with a right-of-way width of 18.5 metres and terminate in two cul-de-sacs at the east and north ends of the site.

 

The applicant has appealed its Zoning By-law Amendment and Subdivision applications to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).  This report recommends that the City Solicitor, together with appropriate City staff, attend the OMB hearing in support of the Zoning By-law Amendment application.  Also in accordance with Chapter 415-16, 18 and 18.1 of the Municipal Code, the Acting Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, advises City Council that he intends to authorize the City Solicitor to attend the OMB in support of the application for Draft Plan of Subdivision as generally illustrated in Attachment 2 and subject to the Conditions in Attachment 7 to this report.
