Villages at Peaks Bay Redline Revision - The Blue Mountains

Date Posted: July - 2018

Description: The proposed redline revision that has been submitted to the County requests that the vacant condominium units draft approved under 42-CDM-2013-01 (Delphi Court) be added as part of the draft approved vacant condominium plan 42-CDM-2007-15 (Neighbourhoods at Delphi Point).  There are no other changes being proposed to the draft approved plans. Essentially what this would be doing is merging the two draft approved plans together into one plan.  The Agent for the Applicant notes that the primary reasons for merging the two draft approved plans together are that both are under the same ownership, both have been marketed under the same project name, both are subject to the same pre-servicing agreement with the Town, both are being serviced under one contract and, both will be subject to the same subdivision development agreement.  The Applicant would also prefer that the developments be implemented under one condominium plan and one condominium corporation.

Flato East Redline Revision - Township of Southgate

Date Posted: November - 2019

Description: The County of Grey has received a proposed redline revision application to an existing draft approved subdivision which would result in minor changes to the proposed Flato East subdivision plan. The redline revisions propose to move the walkway portion of Park Block 356 to the south by 4 lots.  The walkway previously located between Lots 51 and 52 on Flato East Phase 7 and 8 was shifted south to be located between Lots 55 and 56 and increased to 4 metres wide.  This was done to accommodate overland flow drainage from Flato North and to lower the southern end of the trail in elevation.  The proposed change in location allows a connection into a lower point which will reduce risers on adjacent units and minimize flood depths along the overland flow route in large storm events.  The number of lots would remain the same.  The proposed revisions are explained further in the ‘Planning Summary Letter – November 2019’ and are depicted on the ‘Proposed Revised Plan – November 2019’.

Flato East Subdivision (Proposed Revisions) - Township of Southgate

Date Posted: June - 2016

Description: The County has received a request from the Applicant that proposes minor changes to the draft approved plan.  The redline revisions propose to add additional road frontage to Block 362 (stormwater management block) along Russell Street (Street C) which will allow conventional grading to be used versus the need to construct a retaining wall within the Stormwater Management Pond Block.  This proposed change to Block 362 would be accommodated by reducing the widths of Lots 63 to 77 by approximately a metre or less.  The number of lots would remain the same.  The applicant is also proposing to shift Wright Street (Street D) by 2 metres to the west in order to provide additional lot depth to Lots 171 to 186 and Lots 192 to 207 east of Wright Street.  This would increase the lot depth for these lots from 30 metres to 31 metres which would increase the lot area from 300 square metres to 310 square metres.  Lots 151 to 165 on the west side of Wright Street (Street D) would be reduced from 40 metres to 38 metres.  The proposed revisions are explained further in the 'Planning Summary Letter - March 2019' and are depcited on the 'Proposed Revised Plan - March 2019' that can be found using the links below.
