A public information meeting hosted by the Cork and Vine developer and its agents will take place on Wednesday, September 13 at 7 pm at the Wellington and District Community Centre.
The County has received from the developer applications for an Official Plan Amendment and a Zoning By-law Amendment, as well as a request to revise an approved draft plan of subdivision.
The lands are located north of the Millennium Trail, east and west of Belleville Street, within the Ward of Wellington.
The applications would:
- Remove of the lands from the current Special Policy designation (Policy Area 1) and establish a new Village Residential and Village Core Area (inclusive of open space and environmentally protected areas).
- Permit a multi-phased development that includes the development of approximately 1,300 residential units and commercial uses along Belleville Street, while establishing open space and environmentally protected areas.
Members of the public who wish to attend the public meeting must register by contacting Matthew Coffey, Planning Coordinator, Approvals, at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Monday, September 11. Any questions regarding the location or format of the public meeting can also be sent to email@example.com.
New Planning Application Process
This public meeting is an information meeting only. Public information meetings are held as part of the updated planning application process approved in 2021.
At a public information meeting, the proponent/agent will present the proposal. If any member of the public would like to ask questions or make comments, they will be able to do so 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.
