Origin

(December 11, 2017) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

This application proposes an Official Plan Amendment for 305 Dawes Road to allow for a lease renewal by the Children's Peace Theatre (the "CPT") on a 465 square metre property owned by the City of Toronto.

 

The sale or disposal of City-owned lands in the Green Space System and Parks and Open Space Areas is prohibited by Official Plan policies.  An Official Plan Amendment is required because the property is located in the Green Space System and is designated as Parks and Open Space Areas – Natural Areas under the Toronto Official Plan.  The extension of a lease that exceeds a period of 21 years is considered a form of land disposal.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Official Plan to permit the lease extension.
