Appeal Information 

  • APPEALS BY: Lundy's Lane Newmarket Assembly Inc. to the Ontario Land Tribunal re: 43 Lundy's Lane; 592 Watson Avenue; 40, 36 and 32 Bolton Avenue (Ward 3)
  • APPEAL FILE NUMBERS: OLT21-1280 and OLT21-1281

Background Information 

Lundy's Lane Newmarket Assembly Inc. ("Lundy's") has filed two appeals before the Ontario Land Tribunal ("OLT") regarding non-decisions on its Planning Act applications for zoning by-law amendment and site plan drawing approvals for the properties. 

The zoning appeal seeks to (a) bring the properties within Urban Centres Zoning By-law 2019-06 to align the properties with the Urban Centres Secondary Plan, (b) revise which street will be the 'front lot line', (c) revise the loading space requirement (number of spaces, driveway access size and location), (d) adjust a landscape buffer requirement at the southern end of 32 Bolton Avenue, and (e) not require the application of the angular plane in certain instances.  The site plan drawing appeal seeks to have the OLT approve the design drawings as submitted with the appeal.

These appeals arose as Lundy's chose to appeal its development application to seek OLT approval prior to Council having the opportunity to make its own determination on the application.  While it was Lundy's right to do so under the Planning Act, it is always the preference of the Town to have an application proceed to Council for it to make a determination on a development application.
