Council Passes Zoning By-law Amendment For New Development in Oakville


Some new changes have gone through on zoning by-laws in Oakville.

The council recently passed zoning by-law 2019-085 under section 34, of the Planning Act, as amended on September 9.

The purpose of the zoning by-law application is to site specifically amend the zoning of the property to add temporary use permissions for 3 years.

The effect of the application is to permit the conversion of an existing building to new use in the form of a dementia care facility providing family caregiver support, an adult day program and temporary overnight respite care.

The land in question is located on the south side of Speers Road, east of Bronte Road and west of Third Line.

At this time, there are no other applications on the location.

Any appeals to the proposed zoning by-law amendment must be filed with the Town Clerk at 1225 Trafalgar Road, Oakville.

Appeals must:

  • Set out the reasons for the appeal.
  • Be accompanied by a certified cheque or money of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance. 

A copy of the appeal form is available from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal website.

Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal.

An unincorporated association or group may not file a notice of appeal.  

No residents will be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the Town of Oakville Council, or, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

Residents may view planning documents and background material at the Planning Services department between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday or on the development application page.
