The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is in receipt of applications for Amendments to the Town’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law, and for Draft Plan of Subdivision Approval for a Vacant Land Condominium that would facilitate the development of a multi block rural industrial/commercial plan of subdivision, as a vacant land condominium. A key map showing the location of the lands is attached.
The purpose and effect of the proposed amendment to the Town’s Official Plan is to establish a Special Policy Area to establish a Rural Employment Area on the subject lands, to recognize existing permitted land uses, to expand permission for additional rural industrial and commercial uses, and to expand the land area to which such permissions would apply. The purpose and effect of the proposed amendment to the Town’s Zoning By-law would be to amend the zoning of lands from the “Environmental Protection (EP)” Zone, the “Agricultural (A)” Zone and the “Agricultural Exception (A*17)” Zone to the “Rural Employment (M3)” Zone, “Highway Commercial (C3)” Zone and the “Open Space (OS)” Zone, to implement the proposed Special Policy Area in the Town’s Zoning By-law.
The proposed Draft Plan of Subdivision for Vacant Land Condominium proposes the division of the subject lands into five (5) blocks (within the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury), with one (1) of those blocks to be devoted to stormwater management and the remaining four (4) blocks to be devoted to development with industrial and commercial uses. The four (4) blocks proposed for development would be accessed by a 30-metre wide right-of-way intersecting with Highway 9, and/or a 20-metre private right-of-way parallel with Highway 9. The proposed 20-metre wide right-of-way would project to the west into parcels of land within the Town of New Tecumseth, wherein six (6) additional blocks are proposed to be created for development.
Related applications for Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment and for Draft Plan of Condominium have also been filed with the Town of New Tecumseth, under File Numbers “DEV 402” and “NT-CD-2101”.
Additional information regarding the proposed by-law is available by contacting Thomas Dysart, Planner, via email at email@example.com, or by telephone at 905-778-2055, ext. 1403 (a voicemail must be left).
