TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Municipality of Port Hope, in accordance with Sections 22, 34 and 51 of the Planning Act, will hold a statutory Public Meeting on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Town Hall, to consider an application to amend Municipal Official Plan (File No. OP01-2019), an application to amend Zoning By-law 20/2010 (File # ZB06-2019) and an application for a Draft Plan of Subdivision (File # SU01-2019), all submitted by Walker, Nott, Dragicevic Associates Limited on behalf of of AON Inc., 2107401 Ontario Inc., Penryn Park Estates Inc. and Penryn Mason Homes Inc. for lands located south of Strachan Street and west of Victoria Street South (see Subject Lands Map).

The majority of the subject site is within ‘Special Policy Site Area 9’ (Penryn Park Estate). The western portion of the subject site (locally known as the “Skora lands”) is designated ‘Low Density Residential – Urban’.

Zoning By-law 20/2010, as amended, places the proposed subdivision lands into five residential categories, two commercial zone categories and two open space/major recreational zones.

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 on the subject lands. The applicant is proposing the removal of the 3.15 ha woodland located 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’ designation 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” designation to allow residential uses consistent with the adjacent approved Mason Homes Plans of subdivision.

THE PURPOSE of the Zoning By-law amendment is to establish appropriate development standards to accommodate the proposed subdivision.

Additional information relating to the proposed Official Plan Amendment (File # OP01-2019), Zoning By-law Amendment (File # ZB06-2019) and Draft Plan of Subdivision (File # SU01-2019) is available to the public on the Municipal webpage: porthope.ca/community-consultation/penryn-mason-homes-phase-5 and for review at the Municipal Development Team Office located at 5 Mill Street South, Port Hope, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
