Timberlane development needs to be compatible: reader

December 23, 2014   ·   0 Comments

As a home owner located near the proposed Timberlane redevelopment, we were surprised to learn there are 68 homes planned for just 4.7 hectares.
If approved this will mean unit density of 6.54 on the property as compared to 3.47 and 2.22 in surrounding neighborhoods.
Similarly, lot coverage will be 32 percent as compared to 16.5 percent and 12 percent for neighboring areas and 12 percent in the Town’s Official Plan. Properly planned in fill developments are important for Aurora but we submit they have to be compatible.
In addition, the developer’s proposed plan directly contravenes Amendment 34 to the Town’s Official Plan whereby the Yonge Street South lands were designated as “low intensity and to be in the general range of 2 units per acre.”
Sections 3.2.4c and 3.6.2 of Amendment 34 also make interesting reading for all concerned and we hope our decision makers. Study them carefully before granting any exceptions.
