Brock Township issues update following hearing on supportive housing proposal

As residents may be aware, Sept. 15, the Region of Durham and the Township of Brock were before the Ontario Land Tribunal with respect to the Region’s appeal of their site plan application for the Beaverton Supportive Housing project at 91 Nine Mile Road.

Late afternoon on Sept. 15, Brock council held a special council meeting to receive advice from the Township’s solicitor regarding an update from the proceedings earlier that day at the Tribunal.

The following is a statement from township council in support from their solicitor:

“The Region of Durham has agreed with the Township’s position that the site plan process for 91 Nine Mile Road should not be finalized until such time as the Interim Control By-law process has been completed and the ultimate land uses for the lands are determined.  Therefore the site plan appeal and the Township’s motion for an adjournment of the site plan appeal was settled, on the basis that the site plan will be modified after the land uses are finally settled following completion of the planning study, and if it is determined that the land uses do not permit the uses proposed by the Region, then the site plan will not be approved.”

Residents are reminded that the Beaverton Supportive Housing project is still in planning stages and not approved at this time.  Ongoing discussions between solicitors representing both the Region of Durham and Brock Township will continue, and when appropriate, Brock council will provide updates to the public without prejudicing either party.
