RE: PH29.19 Review of Mediation and Settlement on Planning Process
Dear Deputy Mayor Ana Bailao, Chair and Members, Planning and Housing Committee
This is to express our strong support for Councillor Gord Perks’ request for a review and report back on the negotiation process for development applications which have been appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT). Residents Associations are frequently involved in these OLT appeals and have found the process to be inconsistent and not transparent.
We request that the review involve consultation with residents and resident associations, especially those who are “frequent travellers” at the OLT and are familiar with these issues.
