The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is in receipt of applications for approval of Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments and a residential Draft Plan of Subdivision that would facilitate the ultimate development of 70 townhouse and 6 semi-detached units for a total of 76 dwelling units. The proposed Official Plan Amendment would redesignate lands with flood hazards to the Environmental Protection (EP) designation, allow density to be controlled by the Zoning By-law, and would increase the range of the permitted forms of residential development to include semi-detached units, rear lane townhouses, and back to back townhouses.

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would rezone lands included in the draft plan from the Future Development “FD” Zone to the Residential Two Exception “R2-1*X”, Residential Two Exception “R2-2*X”, and Environmental Protection “EP” Zones with the purpose of implementing standards for the proposed development and recognizing natural features and hazards. The proposed Draft Plan of Subdivision would create two (2) road widening blocks, eleven (11) townhouse blocks, an open space block (1), a common elements block (1), and two (2) future development blocks. A key map showing the location of the subject lands is attached.

Additional information regarding the proposal is available for public inspection during regular office hours at the Office of Community Planning located at 305 Barrie Street, Unit 2, Bradford.
