Published May 6, 2022 at 1:05 pm

The Town of Milton has received an application from Mattamy (Brownridge) Limited proposing a plan of subdivision and is seeking a zoning by-law amendment to permit the development as a result.

Mattamy (Brownridge) Limited originally submitted a draft plan of subdivision and a zoning by-law amendment application for the property back in February 2020.

The development was then revised into a two-phased subdivision and the initial phase was approved by Council on April 12, 2021.

The subject lands, which are mostly vacant, are located on the east side of Fourth Line, south of Louis St. Laurent Ave., north of Britannia Rd. and west of James Snow Pkway. within Phase 2 of the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan.

Surrounding land uses include existing vacant agricultural lands, existing residential to the west and a secondary school to the northwest.

The second phase of the proposed subdivision consists of 251 single detached residential units, 108 street townhouse units, 77 back-to-back townhouses, a neighbourhood park block, a stormwater management block, a creek block, a trail block and several buffer blocks.

According to the report, Town staff is satisfied that the plan of subdivision will conform to Provincial, Regional and Town planning policies and Conservation Halton regulations, subject to the requested conditions of draft plan approval as well as the site-specific zoning provisions.

Planning staff is also satisfied that the proposed zoning by-law amendment is consistent with the land-use policies of the Provincial Policy Statement and conforms to the Regional and Town Official Plans.

As a result, staff recommends the approval of the zoning by-law amendment as well as the draft approval of the plan of subdivision.

This is set to be discussed further at an upcoming council meeting on May 9.
