To rezone a portion of the subject lands from a Holding Six Residential Third Density [(H6)-R3] zone to a Holding Six Residential Third Density Exception [(H6) R3-X] zone to permit townhouse dwellings with a maximum lot coverage of 50% (bungalow), whereas the current R3 zone identifies this as ‘Not applicable’;
  3. To rezone portions of the subject lands from a Holding Six Residential Third Density [(H6)-R3] zone to a Recreation (REC) zone to permit the proposed parkland; and
  4. To refine the boundary between the Holding Six Residential Second Density [(H6)-R2] zone and the Holding Six Residential Third Density [(H6)-R3] zone to align with the proposed residential development.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Collingwood before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
