What is traffic calming?

 

Traffic calming is a measure available to the town that can be used to mitigate speeding in instances where higher speeds have been observed and conventional methods of speed deterrence, such as enforcement and education, have not been effective. Some examples of include line markings, radar speed display signs, speed cushions and roundabouts.

BRONTE GREEN CORPORATION – 1401 BRONTE ROAD

 

Bronte Green Development is developing of a new residential community on the former Saw Whet Golf Course lands along Bronte Road.  This subdivision will include approximately 1,181 residential units through a mix of single family homes, townhouses and low-rise apartment.

 

This transit-friendly community has space for an elementary school and provides land for parks and a trail system while preserving sensitive environmental lands that are critical habitat to endangered and other species of wildlife.

 

This development was approved in an Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) settlement between the Town of Oakville and Bronte Green.

 

Status Update:  Construction Underway

 

Detailed engineering plans were submitted to support the start of limited and controlled works on the lands.

 

Wildlife Rescue and Relocation permits from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry were secured and executed to address the conditions imposed pertaining to the wildlife in the existing Golf Course Pond.

 

A site alteration application is under review to permit the following works to proceed in a controlled and monitored manner:

Stage 1 – Tree Fencing:

 

Installation of tree hoarding (sit fencing) – Permit Issued

 

The owner’s tree preservation plan requires them to protect some existing trees during construction.  The site was inspected for compliance and deemed acceptable to allow for Stage 2.

Stage 2 – Tree Removal:

 

Removal of select trees and stumps – Permit Issued

Update:  On March 6, 2018 the remaining tree and stump removals from the developable area of the Bronte Green lands will begin and are scheduled to be completed within the week.

 

These tree removals are part of the approved tree preservation plan but were delayed pending the late 2017 expiration of the Temporary Use License on the former Regional Operations Yard lands and need to remove trees by hand within the Regional Sanitary Sewer Easement Area.  See the Bronte Green Tree Removal Areas map for more details.

 

In November 2017, the owner completed the majority of the tree and stump removal as per the approved tree preservation plan.

 

Detailed assessment and engineering plans have been reviewed and accepted.  These plans outline the area of the site that will be impacted by the grading, servicing and re-contouring necessary to support new residential development.

 

Tree Planting

 

The owner’s tree preservation plan requires them to protect some existing trees during construction as well as plant several new trees that will increase the overall canopy cover on these lands.

 

  • The site currently has an estimated 10 per cent canopy cover. The proposed planting plan will deliver a canopy cover of approximately 35 per cent.
  • 1,326 out of 1,752 trees will be removed from the site.
  • Over 3,500 trees will be planted near the end of the construction/home build process.

 

Review the proposed Tree Planting Plan. This plan is currently under review and subject to change.

 

The following table sets out the canopy transition that will take place on these lands:

 

Tree Statistics

 

  • Total trees (current state) – 1749
  • Total trees to be removed – 1326*
  • Total trees to be retained – 423
  • Total trees to be planted – 3529
  • Total trees (future state) – 3952

* Comprised of 25% Ash Trees and 46% Non-Native Species.

 

Canopy coverage

 

  • Total area of Bronte Green site – 54.79 hectares
    • Existing canopy coverage – 5.87 hectares (10.7%)
    • Planned canopy coverage – 19.31 hectares (35.2%)

Stage 3 – Site Grading

 

Topsoil stripping and major earthworks/site grading. This step allows for the lands to be shaped to support the new development — Permit Issued.

The earthworks/site alteration for this site are divided into four phases as outlined below.

All draft plan conditions required to be satisfied prior to Phase 1 earthworks and grading have been complied with.

 

Phase 1: The developable lands only (excludes any required works within and along the Natural Heritage lands – see Phases 2, 3 and 4 below).

 

  • Earthworks within Hydro One lands and the Region of Halton easement require separate agreements from Hydro One and the Region respectively.
  • The developer has agreements in place with Hydro One and the Region of Halton to cross the corridors with vehicles.

Timing for the remaining phases below will be posted as work progresses on Phase 1.

 

Phase 2:  Required Minor earthworks and slope blending within and along the abutting Natural Heritage (NH) lands.

 

Phase 3:  Required Enhancement works within and along the abutting Natural Heritage lands.

 

Phase 4:  Construction of stormwater outfalls that extend in the abutting NH lands.

Stage 4 – Underground Servicing:

 

Underground servicing may be permitted to proceed under the issuance of a Pre-Servicing Permit — no application made to date.

Stages 2 and 3 will take about one to two years to complete
