Dundas 24 Brock St. N. appeal settlement submitted

News Nov 09, 2019 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

A settlement has been reached which will see two approved variances for a proposed residential building at 24 Brock St. N. withdrawn by the developer, more than six years since a development was first proposed on the site.

In return, an appeal of five remaining variances will be withdrawn. The settlement agreement was to be reviewed this week by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal for final approval and should soon pave the way for the City of Hamilton planning department to begin reviewing a site plan application for a proposed four-storey, 51-unit residential building with a maximum height of just over 14 metres. There is currently no development proposal for the attached vacant industrial site at 363 Park St. W.

The seven variances were approved by the City of Hamilton committee of adjustment in June 2017. Dundas resident Bill Hilson appealed the seven variances later that month.

Hilson died on Sept. 1, 2019. His obituary states he “will be remembered for his tenacity and hard work, as well as his problem-solving skills” and “Bill strongly advocated for fairness and lawful building code compliance in building development within Dundas.”

In a Friday, Nov. 8 email to lawyers representing the parties involved in the appeal, tribunal case co-ordinator Azeem Patel stated a hearing would not immediately be scheduled, and that counsel would be advised the following week whether any additional information is necessary for the tribunal to acknowledge withdrawal of two variances by the developer, withdrawal of the appeal of five variances and subsequent closure of the file.

The property owner withdraws variances that would have allowed balconies as close as 0.6 metres to the front lot line instead of the minimum 1.6 metre setback, and projection of sills, decorative windows, door trim, fascia, cornices, eaves, gutters and similar features as close as one metre to the front lot line instead of the minimum 1.6-metre setback.

The appellant agreed in return to withdraw appeals of the other five variances.
