TOFE Council Unanimously Denied 4409 Erie Road Application

Earlier tonight Town of Fort Erie Council unanimously voted in support of the Staff Recommendation to deny the proposed amendment to the Town’s Zoning By-law No. 129-90 for Report No. PDS-25-2023 for lands known as 4409 Erie Road #CrystalBeach.

The Zoning By-law Amendment application proposed to demolish the existing one-story single detached dwelling, retain the existing two-story single detached dwelling, and rezone the subject property to a site-specific Residential Multiple 1 (RM1) Zone to facilitate the development of 8 new residential dwelling units.

Council denied the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment application for the following reasons:

– the proposal does not consider the character of the surrounding established residential neighbourhood;

– the subject property and waterfront properties along Lake Erie more generally were not identified for infilling and intensification;

– the proposal does not provide for appropriate open space on-site; and

– the property is not located within convenient walking distance from the elements of a traditional neighbourhood.
