The city has received an application for a development proposal for 2267 Lakeshore Road (north side of the street, just east of Lakeshore Public School) for five single detached dwellings on a shared condo road. Currently, a single family home sits on the site.
The application would require a rezoning of the site from R3.2 to R5 to facilitate the homes and the condo road.
A public meeting has been planned for April 29, 7pm, at the Burlington Senior’s Centre, 2285 New St. Planning staff are hosting the meeting, and will provide an overview of the proposal and take comments and questions from residents. I will attend to hear your input and questions.
As more information becomes available, it will be posted here. The applicant has submitted a series of studies in support of the project, including:
- Planning Justification Report
- Conceptual Condominium Plan (site plan)
- Storm Water Management Report
- Serving Reports
- Tree Inventory & Preservation Study (Arborist Assessment)
- Noise Study
- Environmental Screening Checklist
- Height Survey
- Letter from Halton District School Board regarding tree removal
- Transportation Brief
These studies have now been be posted online, at the link above. You can also review these studies in person by visiting the planning counter, second floor of City Hall, or by making an appointment with the city planner assigned to review the application, Rebecca Tannahill:Rebecca Tannahill, H.BA, MES Pl.

More information will follow as I receive it.
My Take: I have not had an opportunity to review the file with our city planner yet, or discuss the implications around the specific rezoning request, and want to hear from residents at the public meeting before taking a position. Generally, I support projects that respect the existing Official Plan and Zoning, with only minor modifications that are required to help advance city and regional policy goals for housing.
