Community Council Recommendations

Decision Advice and Other Information

North York Community Council held a statutory public meeting on January 16, 2018 and notice was given in accordance with the Planning Act.

 

North York Community Council:

 

1. Directed City Planning staff to conduct a lot study on the residential streets bounded by Highway 401, Dufferin Street, Caledonia Road, and Orfus Road to identify and discourage lot severances and assembly in the area.

 

2. Directed City Planning staff to review further noise and vibration attenuation measures and report to City Council at its next meeting on January 31, 2018.

Origin

(December 15, 2017) Report from the Director, Community Planning, North York District

Summary

These applications for Zoning By-law Amendments and Draft Plan of Subdivision propose to amend the former North York Zoning By-law and City of Toronto Zoning By-law and subdivide the lands at 36 and 37 Jane Osler Boulevard and 42 and 44 Cartwright Avenue to permit 8 detached dwellings on 8 residential lots on a public street terminating in a cul-de-sac. 

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-laws.

 

This report also recommends that City Council designate the proposed lots as a Class 4 Area under relevant provincial noise guidelines administered by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC).

 

A Class 4 noise area classification allows for higher daytime and night-time sound level limits than would otherwise be permitted in relation to a noise sensitive land use such as residential dwellings and associated outdoor living areas. The impact of such higher levels is mitigated by specified noise control measures.

 

Environmental noise impact assessments prepared in support of this development confirm that the proposed lots within the draft plan of subdivision can be appropriately considered for a Class 4 noise area classification provided specific noise control measures are incorporated within the design of the development. Required measures will be secured in the draft plan of subdivision conditions.
