City of Burlington Council rejects 2020 Lakeshore Rd. Application

On April 12, 2022, at a Special Meeting of City of Burlington Council, council voted to accept the recommendation in staff report PL-24-22 and refuse the applications for Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Bylaw Amendment submitted by Burlington 2020 Lakeshore Inc. proposing a mixed-use development at the site of the current Waterfront Hotel and subject of the Waterfront Hotel Planning Study.

City staff evaluated the applications for Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Bylaw Amendment for 2020 Lakeshore Rd. under all applicable policies, regulations, and guidelines. They considered all comments received from technical reviewers and the public.

The proposed development is not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement, does not conform with A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, does not conform with Halton Region’s Official Plan and does not conform to the policies of the City of Burlington Official Plan (1997 as amended). The proposed development also does not conform to the City’s new Official Plan (2020). These factors led Staff to recommend refusal of the subject applications.

Please visit the development application webpage for more information on the development application process for 2020 Lakeshore Road.

At another Special Council meeting also held yesterday, City Council voted to receive and file the Waterfront Hotel Study Planning Justification Report.
