At least 500 new houses are coming to Barrie, but the development could actually grow to over 800 homes on Mapleview Drive East.
Jones Consulting Group submitted an application for a zoning by-law amendment and plan of subdivision on behalf of Honeyfield Bemp 2 Ltd. and Bemp 2 Holdings, recently, for property at 515 Mapleview Dr. E., located on the south side of the road between Dean Avenue and Madelaine Drive, according to BarrieToday.ca.
The purpose of a red-line revision to the draft subdivision plan would be to enlarge a mixed-use block on the west side of the property and for minor adjustments to residential lots and streets – increasing the plan to 847 homes, depending on the future built form on the proposed mixed-use blocks, according to the developers.
Since the draft plan was approved in 2017, the developer decided to adjust frontages and the layout to create a more compact built form, and enlarge the neighbourhood mixed-use, say city staff.
The previous zoning-bylaw amendment and draft plan of subdivision were approved in 2017. A staff report is expected before the end of the year.
