Queens Landing Development Update
The Town of East Gwillimbury is committed to our strategic plan which focuses on residential development in the coming years. We are proud of the vast amount of development that is occurring in a responsible and thoughtful manner. The Town has processes in place with stringent regulations that require a high standard of adherence. These standards and processes are there to ensure that new developments are built in safe and complaint manner, to protect both new and existing residents in East Gwillimbury. As with every municipality in the province, all new residential builds in the Town must be built in compliance with the Ontario Building Code prior to any occupancy permits being issued.
The Town has been addressing an isolated incident in which a home builder was found to be building homes without the appropriate permits required. A stop work order was issued and the Town has since worked with the builder to achieve compliance. The Subdivision Plan is now registered and building permits have been issued. The Town is working diligently with the builder to ensure that all homes within that development adhere to all applicable building standards as defined within the Ontario Building Code.
In 2017, staff will be bringing forward a report and recommendations which will review process improvements for enhanced subdivision and building control enforcement measures. This would be for those who begin construction without the appropriate municipal approvals or proceed with unauthorized construction on designated fire break lots.
