Some of our members have expressed an interest in learning about applications or amendments being proposed in Oakville. There has been an application to amend the Official Plan that would re-designate the land located East of Dorval Drive and North of Rebecca Street, from Residential Low Density to Residential Medium Density to allow for six, three-story street townhouse units to be built on a private lane.

Property under review by Town staff

Long vacant, the lot at 42 Lakeshore Road, that fronts onto Lakeshore Road, at the corner of Chisholm, has become an eyesore for the residents that look onto it and to those walking by it on Lakeshore Road. Our Councillors met with the Mayor and discussed the development options available to the Town. It is thought, that the Heritage Designated house and tree that stand on the property and all the rules that go with building on or near Designated property, might be the reason developers have not shown interest in the building lot. The Town will be reassessing the site and after a review has been made by their staff, will report back to our Councillors and the WHRA.
