Information meeting set for Loyalist Heights development applications

A virtual public information meeting is set for Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7 pm regarding planning applications for development of 393 residences for Loyalist Heights – bordered by Loyalist Parkway, Sandy Hook Road and bisecting the Millennium Trail.

Applicant Narisu Huhe proposes to create a residential subdivision consisting of a maximum of 393 dwellings, public streets, public open space, servicing/stormwater blocks, and an environmental protected area.

Housing is to include single family semi-detached and townhomes units, apartment units, and seniors units. The development also includes trails, cycling areas and a parkette.

The municipality has received applications for Draft Plan of Subdivision, Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Bylaw Amendment for a residential development.

The property is located within the Picton Urban Centre with the north parcel having a land use designation of town residential and the south parcel having a land use designation of town residential and environmental protection.

An irregularly-shaped woodland is located in the south-east corner of the south parcel. There are no watercourses within the property, but the Waring’s Creek is located close to the east boundary, and an unnamed creek is located approximately 330 m to the west. The development would be serviced by municipal water and sewer. The storm water management facility is proposed along the west side of the protection area.

This public meeting is an information meeting only – held as part of the new planning application process announced in July – where the proponent/agent will present the proposal. The public can ask questions or make comments after the presentation by the applicant.

The statutory public meeting required under the Planning Act will be a Planning Committee meeting and would only be held after the public information meeting and when the assigned County planner has completed an analysis of the project.

Members of the public who wish to attend the virtual public meeting must register by contacting by noon Monday, Oct. 25.

    This was a case of Council dithering. That group cost us a fortune. It is one of the largest Council failures in history.

    In Picton, the infrastructure needed replacement, yes this is true. And yes it would cost money. BUT, it did not warrant the size and location of the new water treatment/sewage structure built on the side of a mountain. I recall every single thing about it during the build increased ten fold as far as costs go. The brilliant architect and council set this up. We’ll be paying for it for generations to come. Apathy.

    Perhaps you should ask how much more the rates would have gone up without “at least 500 new homes” to spread the costs over.

  4. Dennis Fox says:

    Mike you have brought up a point that needs to be sent far and wide – DEVELOPMENT never pays for itself! The people of PEC are going to have to pay very close attention to the number of new development sites coming on stream or our community will be lost to the money people – and there are many of them.

    The idea that our bills will go down as our population increases is a nice story for politicians to tell, but it isn’t true. Ask yourself, when has the cost of any bill gone down because of the increase in population? Instead, our taxes will increase because of the need to take care of more roads, sewers, sidewalks, police, fire, ambulance, parks and recreation, etc..

    I’m not opposed to good development and having neighbours, but I do question how vigorously our community is being protected by our elected representatives?

    It was understanding that as more residents hooked up to the municipal water system the rates would go down. Just recently it was announced that rates were going up, with still another planned development what gives. Can council or anybody explain. I for one would like to know what amount of money is generated from the water sewer system. Over the last 5 years, I am just guessing but there must be at least 500 new homes that have been hooked up to the system
