Mr. Makuch’s 10-page decision to refuse the application to sever the property at 80 Thirty Ninth was based on the scale of the homes relative to the proposed lot sizes and preservation of trees that exist on the property and along the property line on the south side of the property.
He states the ”… frontages do not maintain the intent of policy 4.5.1 of the Official Plan” and, combined with the scale of the proposed homes, ”… will give the appearance of an overdevelopment of the lots.”
He further states that it was ”… clear that no attempt was made to design the development in a manner to preserve and enhance the urban forest in a neighbourhood where the forest and canopy are part of its character.”
