Council to consider fighting two large developments in YSW

On October 1, City Council will consider whether the city should send lawyers to fight the developments on Locust Street in Mount Dennis and at 1821 Weston Road.

Both developments are being appealed at the Ontario Land Tribunal.

According to staff, the buildings violate provincial policy, the Growth Plan, and local planning guidelines. They are also too tall, too large, and out of context with the surroundings, among many other complaints.

Council will also consider whether to allow demolition of 975 Weston Road, which would allow it to be merged with two neighbouring vacant parcels and developed.
