Ontario Municipal Board Decision
The Ontario Municipal Board issued its decision approving the Eden Oak Creditview Heights Inc. development applications seeking a zoning bylaw amendment and conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval for a 31 unit residential subdivision in the Hamlet of Glen Williams in the Town of Halton Hills.
What did the Ontario Municipal Board approve?
The approval issued by the Ontario Municipal Board includes two major components:
- A Zoning Bylaw that sets out the various uses for the site including the designated environmental lands, the stormwater ponds, and the residential areas along with the various regulations that apply to the overall site and the specific lots; and
- The conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval which set out the studies, obligations and detailed requirements that must be fulfilled by the developer before they can register* the lots and build on those lots. *Registration is the legal term for creation of residential lots (which will sold to home owners) and creation of associated infrastructure such as roads, stormwater and protected lands which is owned by the Town.
What happens next?
The owner has advised they intend to start the process of clearing the conditions of draft plan approval. Before any on or off site work can begin the owner must clear the required specific conditions, which includes submitting various studies and documents and entering into agreements that satisfy the Town and outside agencies including Halton Region and Credit Valley Conservation . Over the coming months, studies and plans will be reviewed by Town and agency staff and sent back to the owner. The owner will then update and resubmit the information until the issues identified in the conditions are cleared. During this time, residents may notice onsite activity such as people surveying or conducting related field work. One of the conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval (Condition 20) includes a requirement for a comprehensive construction management plan including a communications plan that must be approved before any site activity can begin. The construction management plan will include a central point of contact that residents can call.
Where will construction occur first?
The location, timing or sequencing of development cannot be confirmed until staff has received the required studies including a detailed project schedule. Before any significant on-site work can begin, work is required on:
- Gamble Street to create the sewer connections to the owners lands; and
- Credit Street to install a stormwater pipe.
Will there be disruption to Wildwood Trail?
An emergency services connection (gated granular path) and water services connection will be created connecting Ann St to the future cul de sac in the Eden Oak development. The grade difference between Ann St and the cul de sac will require lowering of the Wildwood Trail in that area. The owner is required to provide plans demonstrating how this crossing will occur along with a construction plan that addresses the staging and restoration. Wildwood Trail restoration and construction is addressed in Condition 65 of the conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval.
What does “conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval” mean?
The issuance of conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval signals that the development has been reviewed and that the fundamentals of the development are viable. This is a commonly issued approval wherever subdivision applications are filed in Ontario and is recognized in the Planning Act. When municipal Councils approve a subdivision they are approving conditions of draft plan of subdivision.
How many conditions are there?
For the Eden Oak development there are 114 conditions. As mentioned above, these conditions include all the required studies, obligations and detailed requirements that must be met before lots can be registered. Some of the conditions are administrative in nature, others deal with what is called “detailed design,” still others require communications with the community and future property owners.
Who reviews the conditions on behalf of the Town?
Town staff or specialized consultants retained by the Town review the material submitted by the applicant to clear conditions. Staff are professionals in their fields with extensive career backgrounds and certification in their respective disciplines. Consultants may be retained by the Town in areas of specialization outside the scope of Town staff or where additional resources are required due to work flow demands. On this project, the Town will continue to retain Burnside Engineering, a firm with experience in subdivision design matters similar to those accompanying this project.
How will future communications occur?
Prior to related on or off-site activity, residents will receive notification from the owner or the Town as appropriate. The owner’s construction management plan, required as a condition of approval of the draft plan of subdivision, is to include a communications strategy including the appointment of a central point of contact and related responsibilities (see Condition 20 of the conditions of draft plan of subdivision approval).
When might construction activity begin on the site?
The owner hopes to begin site work in the fall of 2017 after receiving the necessary authorization from the Town and other agencies. The exact dates depend on the Town and agency staff’s review of the owner’s submissions and clearance of the various conditions. Activity other than surveying is not expected on or around the site until the late fall 2017 at the earliest. The construction management plan has to be approved by the Town before any site alteration activity occurs and communications to residents is part of this plan.
