    Has there been any developments if the Region of Durham has approved of the subdivision

    MiniMark asked 7 months ago

    The Commissioner of Planning and Economic Development for the Regional Municipality of Durham has decided to grant draft approval to draft plan of subdivision S-S-2018-03 subject to conditions. Notice of this decision was issued on July 15, 2021.

    If the Commissioner does not receive a notice of appeal regarding this decision by August 4, 2021, the application is deemed draft approved.

    Has the Durham District School Boards decided that a school is not needed on Union Ave in the space designated? What will become of that land? Will the pond behind Earl Cuddie/Greenway Blvd be expanded immediately to accommodate this subdivision, or is the current size sufficient?

    Jason asked about 1 year ago

    The following response was provided by the School Board - "The Durham District School Board planning staff assess the needs of the board on an annual basis. At this time the development needs within the Township of Scugog do not justify the construction of a school on the Union Avenue site. Board staff will continue to maintain ownership of the site. When a school can be justified for construction a Funding submission to the Ministry of Education will be submitted. DDSB staff will continue to work with Township of Scugog staff to examine development needs and future school site needs in the Town of Port Perry."

    There will be improvements made to the existing stormwater management (SWM) pond behind Earl Cuddie/Greenway Blvd (known as the Perryview SWM Pond) in order to accommodate the draft approved subdivisions on the west side of Union Avenue, being the Ribcor and Chieftan subdivisions.  These improvements will also accommodate this proposed subdivision by Delpark. The Township is currently working with the developers to finalize the detailed plans for the pond and works on the Perryview SWM Pond are anticipated to start later this year.

    Why has a number of large blocks of Townhouses been moved to the more central location shown? They were much more acceptable as originally placed at the south end. The new location puts far too many directly behind us long term residents of Union Ave. Your noise study looked at their original placement, not this one. We are all not in favour of this change!

    GRideout asked over 1 year ago

    The townhouse units were relocated to balance the policies of the Scugog Official Plan that directs townhouses be dispersed and integrated throughout new developments, with the desire to keep the townhouse units more central and closer to the Robin Trail/King Street intersection. It was Delpark Home’s intention to not back townhouses onto existing lots that front onto Union Avenue and Perryview Drive. Delpark Homes will review the plan with respect to any proposed townhouses that back onto existing lots on Union Street.

    The noise study reviewed the potential for traffic noise from King Street to impact the residents in the new houses near King Street (including the medium density townhouse units). Noise studies do not review the noise impacts from residential buildings on other residential uses as the buildings themselves do not generate excessive noise.

    When will the public meeting be held? Please confirm that the proposed exit on Mead will be switched to King Street. It is commendable that changes in density and housing types have been adjusted.

    This switch makes more sense re emergency vehicles and avoiding present residential areas. asked over 1 year ago

    A Virtual Public Meeting has now been scheduled for November 16, 2020 at 6:30 pm. Residents can watch the meeting livestreamed via the Township's official YouTube channel or participate electronically by contacting the Township. 

    The most recent subdivision plan proposed maintains the road connection to Mead Drive. The traffic work submitted by the applicant's traffic consultant notes that the proposed road network provides a sufficiently direct route for most of the units in the development to use the Robin Trail/King Street intersection. The Mead Drive connection provides an alternative route for new and existing residents to use, but, at the same time, the route is discontinuous enough that it is anticipated that this will not be used as a “cut-through” on a regular basis.
