Meaford, Ontario – February 11, 2016 – The Architectural Conservancy of Ontario – Meaford (ACOM), SVV Holdings (the Developer), and the Municipality of Meaford are pleased to announce that the parties have reached a settlement with regard to the ACOM appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.
The appeal was related to the redevelopment of 35 to 47 Sykes Street North, where the developer requested an Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment to exceed the current permitted maximum height of 4 stories. The proposal is to construct a new building with ground floor commercial and residential condominiums above. The current planning approvals required the developer to maintain portions of the existing façade.
The Settlement identifies certain architectural features that will be included as part of the Conservation Plan. In addition, the Parties are requesting that the Ontario Municipal Board endorse some minor modifications to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments to implement the settlement and clarify the provisions from the original approval. Through this process the new development will respect and embrace the various historic architectural styles.
Subject to endorsement by the Ontario Municipal Board, the developer will now be proceeding to finalize detailed building drawings for approval by the Municipality and proceed to market the proposed development. All the parties look forward to a successful redevelopment that will contribute to a healthy and vibrant downtown.
