Pleasantview appeal dropped
The landowners pushing for residential development in the last rural area of Dundas have abandoned their Ontario Municipal Board appeal of the city’s new rural official plan. Bella Court Developments Limited and three numbered companies had been seeking permission for 760 units along York Road. This appears to be the final chapter in a saga dating back to the early 1990s that last year saw the provincial government agree to place the Pleasantview lands under the protection of the Niagara Escarpment Plan.
