Senior Planner Juliane vonWesterholt has notified us that the 22 Weber St W Zone Change Amendment and Official Plan Amendment application has been appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) for a decision. No details have been shared. (It is not uncommon for parties to refrain from commenting while matters are before a court.)
If the LPAT accepts the case, the decision will be removed from the City of Kitchener’s jurisdiction.
No public meeting was convened by the City of Kitchener for community input.
The case is posted with the LPAT as Case Number PL210104. A Case Coordinator (the person to whom questions should be directed) has yet to be identified.
Further details to be shared when available.
Applicants (ownerships) can turn to the LPAT when a municipality does not render a decision within provincial timelines. In 2019, the Province reduced the maximum number of days permitted to consider this sort of case from 210 to 120 under Bill 108. During the first wave of the pandemic, the Province suspended the timeline requirements. When the suspension expired, no further extension was issued.
