File Numbers: OP01-2019 OPA#10 (Official Plan Amendment), ZB06-2019 (Zoning By-law Amendment), and SU01-2019 (Draft Plan of Subdivision)

Applicant: Robert A. Dragicevic of Walker, Nott, Dragicevic Associates Limited on behalf of AON Inc., 2107401 Ontario Inc., Penryn Park Estates Inc. and Penryn Mason Homes Inc.

Subject Lands

 The Municipality of Port Hope has received complete draft plan of subdivision, official plan amendment, and zoning by-law amendment applications for the subject lands.

The subject lands are mostly vacant and have a lot area of 19.4 hectres (47.8 acres) with lot frontage on Victoria Street South and Strachan Street. The property is situated south of Strachan Street and west of Victoria Street South in the Urban Area in the Municipality of Port Hope.

The purpose of the proposed Draft Plan of Subdivision application is to facilitate the development of 369 dwelling units comprised of 326 single detached dwellings and nine (9) townhouse blocks (consisting of 43 townhouse units) in a freehold tenure (which means that the townhouses are not condos) on the subject lands.

The proposed development will include an array of public roads (to be maintained by the Municipality) and will be fully serviced (connected to municipal water and sewer systems and other utilities) in accordance with Municipal requirements.

The overall proposed density of development meets and exceeds current and in force Growth Plan targets for this Designated Greenfield area of the Municipality, which means that these lands were designated for residential development (2003 OMB approved draft plans of subdivision referred as “Penryn Park” and “Redner”).

The applicant is proposing that the development would result in the removal of 3.15 hectres of woodland on the west side of Victoria Street South.

The purpose of the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to:

• re-designate a portion of the subject lands on the west side of Victoria Street South to a site specific “Medium Density Residential’ in order to facilitate the development of townhouse units.

• re-designate the lands within ‘Special Policy Site Area 9’ (Penryn Park Estate), including the portions of the subject lands that were previously part of the Port Hope Golf and Country Club to a site-specific “Low Density Residential - Urban” to allow residential uses consistent with the adjacent approved Mason Homes Plans of subdivision.

An amendment to the existing zoning By-law is required in order to establish appropriate development standards to accommodate the freehold dwelling types and designs to be constructed within the proposed subdivision by rezoning the lands (including the portions of the subject lands that that were previously part of the Port Hope Golf and Country Club) to three site specific Residential Zones.
