SCENIC TRAILS

UrbanSolutions Planning & Land Development Consultants Inc. is the authorized planning consultant for Starward Homes (Scenic 2012) Ltd. who is the owner of 1 Redfern Avenue in Hamilton, Ontario.

In 2012, Council for the City of Hamilton approved the subject lands for a four (4) storey residential building comprised of 80 units. The owner proposes to amend the previous planning approvals to permit a four (4) storey residential building having 144 units.

To facilitate this proposal, applications have now been submitted to the City of Hamilton to amend the City’s Urban Hamilton Official Plan and City of Hamilton Zoning By-law.

The purpose of this website is to provide interested parties with access to the proposed development application details, supporting studies and access to participate in the planning application process.

RESOURCES

Prior to submitting the planning applications to the City of Hamilton, the development concept participated in the City’s Formal Consultation process.  Through this process, it was determined that a Concept Plan, Planning Justification Report, Urban Design Brief, Transportation Impact Study, Heritage Impact Assessment, Functional Servicing Report and an Archaeological Assessment would be required to evaluate the proposal.

These reports have been completed and submitted to the City of Hamilton in support of the proposal and copies of the reports are available for you to review.
