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

The subject lands are currently vacant and have a lot area of 1.72 ha (4.25 ac) with lot frontage of 24.0 m.

Gages Creek and its respective floodway, which are protected from the proposed development, run along the eastern and southern boundaries of the site.


The purpose of the proposed Draft Plan of Subdivision application is to facilitate the development of 4 blocks for 21 street townhouses on the subject lands (Figure 2). The proposed plan includes the northward extension of Talbot Drive as a 20 metre wide road allowance across Gages Creek and terminating in a new temporary hammerhead adjacent to the north end of the subdivision.

The purpose of the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to reinstate previously approved Medium Density Residential and Open Space land use designations.
