We are providing our comments on the draft proposal that has been the subject of recent public consultations. We are concerned about the proposals that appear to be one-sided and do not reflect an evidence based and careful assessment of the Mid-Rise Guidelines developed by Brooke-McIlroy Planning, dated May 2010.
- Important stakeholders were not represented in the consultation process to develop the revised Mid-Rise Guidelines.
- The process appeared to rely on input/guidance from the development industry to generate a final report and recommendations including draft revised performance standards.
- There was no similar opportunity for input from residents including those living in the immediately abutting lands and other affected areas
- The public is now being asked to comment on what appears to be a “done deal”.
