The proposed development by Losani Homes at the former Fifth Wheel lands will go before a statutory public meeting on January 28, 2020 at 6PM @ Town Hall.Continue reading
With fall in the air, our local enclaves of forests (well, we don’t really have many left below the escarpment) are starting to turn into beautiful hues and the much loved Irish Woodlot in Grimsby is no exception. As such, we thought it would be apt to turn our “How They Voted” eyes onto the Irish Woodlot and the proposed “Livingston Avenue Extension” through it.
We came across an interesting opinion piece by Joan Little in the Hamilton Spectator regarding out-of-scale development in Burlington and the rise of yet another citizen’s group.
In the case of Burlington however, their city manager James Ridge seems to be going the failed route of the NPCA in an attempt to suppress this public dissent.

If you were surprised when it was announced Rosebay was seeking (and received) permission to build two towers at 14 and 18 stories on the previous Planet Nite Club site… well, you better sit down.
Well, summer may be upon us but that didn’t keep people from packing the gallery at the July 11th Planning & Development Committee. With two “Open Houses” on the Agenda, it was great to see such a large turnout by residents who actively took part in the meetings.
We just wanted to post a quick reminder of the OMB Pre-Hearing on LJM’s Waterview Condominiums Phase II. The Pre-Hearing will commence tomorrow (Wednesday July 5th, 2017) at Grimsby Town Hall (Council Chambers) at 10:00 AM.
Residents in the West End of Winston Road recently received notice of a “Public Open House” regarding a proposed subdivision at 709-721 Winston Road. The proposed development calls for a rezoning with a combination of 8 detached dwellings along Winston Road and 28 condominium townhouses abutting the rear of those properties, with access from the North Service Road
This advertorial in the recent weekend edition of The Hamilton Spectator certainly caught our eye. Needless to say, it is definitely a subjective view of things but what is surprising is the “selling point” of a GO station in Grimsby in 2020.
WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THE LJM WATERVIEW 15-STOREY DEVELOPMENT?
At the December 13, 2016 Planning and Development Committee public meeting, Winston and Lakelawn residents stated loud and clear that the 15-storey LJM Waterview development is not appropriate and does not belong in their backyards. The committee listened and denied the application for Official Plan and Zoning amendments to increase the height to 15 storeys from 9.
As we have previously posted, there will be no land removed from the Greenbelt in Grimsby as a result of the 2017 amendments to The Greenbelt Plan. That however has not deterred the Town’s hope of some “concessions” concerning land around the planned GO station.
