Boynton Court - Subdivision

The County of Grey and Town of The Blue Mountains received an application for Draft Plan of Subdivision for vacant lands on Alfred Street as seen in the Key Map below.

The original proposal has been revised and seeks to create fourteen (14) lots on a new internal cul-de-sac road. Some of these lots will be further sub-divided later through Part-Lot Control, resulting in nineteen (19) total lots. The proposal includes five semi-detached lots yielding 10 residential units and two blocks of Townhouses yielding 9 units. The proposed subdivision would be serviced by municipal water and sewer services. The new cul-de-sac road would have access from Victoria Street.

The Zoning By-law Amendment seeks to rezone the lands from the Development (D) zone to the Residential (R1-2) and (R2) zones. These zones would permit the development of single, semi-detached and townhouse dwellings. Please note that currently the property falls under the older Town of Thornbury Zoning By-law 10-77, and this amendment would bring the property into the Town’s newer Comprehensive Zoning By-law 2018-65.

A public meeting for this proposal was held on September 30, 2020, to gather input from the public and agencies on the proposal. Due to Covid-19, the public meeting was in a “virtual” online format. See the documents below, including the Public Notices, Studies and Comments received.

The next steps in this file are:

  1. The Town to complete the review of the proposal and all documents including studies, agency and public comments.
  2. Developer to address identified issues, and make any necessary revisions, provide additional information as requested by the Town or other agencies.
  3. Planning staff will bring a recommendation report to Council at a future time once above matters are addressed.
  4. Council will make a decision on the zoning and pass a motion on the Draft Plan of Subdivision (in support or not support) and provide those decisions to the County of Grey.
  5. The County of Grey will make a decision on the Draft Plan of Subdivision.

If a Draft Plan of Subdivision is approved, a developer is then in a position to create a detailed engineering design on the proposed Subdivision to further the development towards final County approval (registration of the Subdivision Plan and a Subdivision Agreement with the Town).
