Rezoning Application 5-2019-85 of 2002 is submitted by Monteith Brown Planning Consultants, on behalf of the owner, Bright’s Grove Golf Club Inc.

The purpose of the application is to remove the holding zones from the property municipally known as 1992 Estella Street, which is located in Bright’s Grove, east of Thelma Avenue, west of Yonge Street and north of Cow Creek (See Area Map).

The holding zones were placed on the property by Council through By-law 56 of 2019 and they prohibit any development on the lands, including buildings or structures, until such time as the suffix (H) is removed. The removal of the (H) shall only occur when a Preliminary Servicing Report is submitted, which addresses stormwater quantity and quality to the satisfaction of the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority. The removal of the holding zone would allow for the developer to proceed with satisfying the conditions of Draft Plan of Subdivision SD2-2018 for 8 single detached dwelling lots and a condominium block for the development of 64 single detached dwellings (CD1-2018).
