Conditional draft plan approval for development in Adjala

Posted September 11, 2018

A 25-unit residential subdivision at 1234 Conc. 5 in Adjala-Tosorontio continues to move forward carrying with it an 87-point draft plan agreement whose terms include satisfying the Township's six key conditions which the developer appealed to the OMB and won the zoning bylaw amendment.

However, last spring's OMB ruling directed the Township to prepare the draft plan agreement to include Rondax Holdings Inc's obligation to pay all outstanding fees as a condition.

The property is a 35 hectare parcel of rolling upland and river valley, located within the Oak Ridges Moraine. Rondax purchased the property in 2007 and took over the planning applications already on file dating back to 2001.

The draft plan agreement includes:
  • Road works requirements including the preparation of a Traffic Study and entering into an agreement with the Township related to design criteria, required improvements, construction mitigation and costs.
  • Water requirements including the provision of an updated Hydrogeological Report and entering into an agreement with the Township related to design criteria, construction mitigation and monitoring.
  • Additional TRCA requirements related to groundwater and water balance concerns.
  • Tree and vegetation requirements including the requirement for a Tree Preservation and Planting Plan that can be successfully implemented in association with other works proposed for the site.
  • Resolving financial issues requiring that Township accounts associated with this development be paid in full (including securities required as part of the previously completed Cost Acknowledgement Agreement) and acknowledges that no additional efforts on behalf of the Township will take place until the arrears are dealt with.
  • Notification that the Township will not consider increased lot coverage on any lot in the future, as the Township's position is that the Board approved development is already more than what should be permitted on this site.
