Public meeting planned for Beaverton subdivision application

A proposed subdivision in the area of Regional Road 23 and Concession 5 will be discussed at a public meeting on April 16 in Beaverton.

Brock Township CAO/Clerk Thom Gettinby confirmed Monday (March 19) that the meeting would be held at 7 p.m. at the Beaverton Community Centre.

According to Gettinby, the subdivision would include up to 252 units, located on the north east corner of the intersection. This application is separate from the 103-home subdivision planned for the village, which residents had their first look at earlier this month.

When the issue was first mentioned in a March 12 committee meeting, Councillor Gord Lodwick declared a conflict of interest as he owns property in the area.

The applicant for the 252-unit subdivision, including a park, walkway and stormwater blocks, is Beaverton Lake Homes Inc., out of Markham. They are represented by Macnaughton Hermsen Britton Clarkson Planning Limited, from Woodbridge.

Another public meeting is set for the following Monday (April 23) at the Sunderland Arena. This meeting is to discuss an application related to a surplus farm dwelling.

Gettinby does not expect the Sunderland proposal to be contentious but due to the number of houses within the notice of circulation area around the property, the Township felt it would be best to hold a public meeting.
