An April 11 decision by Toronto’s Committee of Adjustment to deny minor variances to the property at 461 Sackville Street to allow for development of a day nursery is being appealed to the Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB), the successor to the now-dismantled Ontario Municipal Board. The run-up to that hearing, and the decision, drew wide media coverage, most critical of the objections raised to the application.
The appeal was filed by the building’s owner and the hearing date is set for August 17, 2018 at 9 a.m. in Hearing Room 2 at 40 Orchard View Blvd, 2nd floor, suite 253. The case file number is 18 150889 S45 28 TLAB.
At issue: “To alter the existing 2 ½-storey mixed-use building containing four dwelling units and two retail/commercial units by converting the building in its entirety to a day nursery use and by constructing a new exit staircase and fire escape.”
TLAB is an independent, quasi-judicial, tribunal that has jurisdiction over appeals of the Committee of Adjustment decisions in the City of Toronto.
