Dundas Beverly Tire planning new, larger service centre

News Jun 23, 2017 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

Benson Group, owners of Beverly Tire & Auto, have applied to the City of Hamilton to build a two-storey, 1,500-square-metre motor vehicle repair garage with eight service bays at 89 Osler Dr. in Dundas, steps away from the company’s existing location.

Beverly Tire general manager Shawn Mackenzie couldn’t say this week if the existing location next door at the north end of University Plaza would continue to operate or be shut down.

“Nothing to report at this time,” Mackenzie stated in an email Wednesday morning.

The development proposal requires three minor variances, including dropping a parking requirement from 49 to 23 parking spaces, and permitting two parking spaces in the required front yard.

The property is located behind homes on the north end of Tweedsmuir Avenue.

According to the site plan, an existing entrance from Osler will be removed and replaced with a landscape strip, and a new entrance — with new depressed sidewalk — will be created just east of the old entrance. Site plan drawings indicate the proposed structure will stretch east-west along the Osler frontage, with parking spaces behind it.

The site plan also states: “Parking lot to be illuminated to minimum required levels” with at least two different types of lights.

Cambridge-based Benson Group bought the former Delta Auto Service at 89 Osler Dr. in December 2014. Three months earlier, the company participated in a formal consultation with city planning staff regarding a possible eight-bay service centre with a warehouse and showroom. The original discussion included 14 parking spaces, rather than the proposal for 22 going to the committee of adjustment on Thursday, June 29 at approximately 2:20 p.m.

The previous auto service centre on the property has already been demolished.
