The OMB Hearing for 2167 Gordon Drive is complete.  We are $6,000 away from our goal!!!  Legal Defence Fund Needs Your Support!!!  We need to pay the final bills!

To All Gordon Woods Residents - RESPOND ASAP - We still needs funds to protect your investment!!!



The Applicant has been successful in this Appeal however the Board has imposed certain conditions on the plan before implementation.  Obviously the pre-settlement with the City was a critical aspect of this Hearing and while we are disappointed in the approval of this seven lot plan, we can take considerable pride in our appeal of this proposal which is in the very heart of our Community.  The OMB thoroughly canvassed the environmental issues of the plan and has approved same however the Applicant went to some lengths of retaining environmental consultants and arborists to propose a number of initiatives that will make the Development compatible with our beautiful natural area.  Specifically the OMB states that:


“ the Appellant’s scientific data as contained in the environmental reports and subsequent December 2014 updates on file, reflect the seriousness with which the Appellant took the City’s recommendations and the Appellant complied by providing some of the most rigorous and comprehensive scientific and environmental evidence this Member has seen for a private application such as this.”


A lot of this work was done by the Applicant in November and December 2014 in preparation for our Appeal proceedings. The OMB also states that:


“ the settlement reflects sensitive development vis-à-vis the ecological condition of the subject lands that requires a minimal number of trees to be removed but replaced with more intensive tree planting and re-planting as well as maintaining the property’s  peripheral tree canopy and ground cover to the extent possible to reflect the verdant nature of the neighbourhood. “


While the end result is not entirely what we desired, we are hopeful that our efforts on behalf of the Gordon Woods area will be appreciated by the community and will ensure that future development in our area takes these added steps of environmental overviews as part of normal requirements in a residential woodland area.

To All Gordon Woods Residents


Right now developers are threatening the character of the Woods.  The immediate threat is to create nine substandard lots out of one in the centre core of Gordon Woods on the east side of Gordon Drive by way of a cul-de-sac and condo road (see attached site plan proposal).  If this one is successful, what’s next?


This is why the Gordon Woods Homeowners Association is going to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) in January 2015 to oppose this severance and rezoning to condominium status on Gordon Drive.  To do so we need to be represented by knowledgeable, credible, experienced and respected counsel and planners.  But it is expensive - at least $60,000.00.


We are asking that you once again show that you care and contribute a small fraction of the value of your home to the Gordon Woods Defence fund to help protect its value.  1/20th of one percent of $1.2M is $600.00.  Some residents have already demonstrated their strong commitment and support by contributing thousands of dollars each.  We were successful at the OMB in 2008 – let’s do it again!


Unless the residents show commitment by contributing sufficient funds for this effort the GWHA will be unable to continue to protect our precious community.   If you care, please contribute now.  In order to engage legal counsel, we need to receive your commitment by November 5, 2014.


Attached is a more detailed explanation of the situation, a plan of the proposed development and a donation form.


A representative of the Gordon Woods Homeowners Association will be contacting you by phone or in person to follow up shortly.

Call to Action

Dear Residents,


Your Board has been hard at work with regards to the infill development of 2167 Gordon Drive and the proposed 9 homes on a condominium road for this property.  We have engaged the expertise of a planner to obtain an opinion as to what might constitute a reasonable development proposal for this property.  As mentioned at our Annual General Meeting last month, infill is a fact of life and something we will be unable to avoid.  However, we wish to ensure that we have the best use of the land under the circumstances.


It is of the utmost importance that the Planning Department also hear from individual homeowners as well as the GWHA Board.  Michael Hynes, the City Planner in charge of this file wants to hear from residents.  We need you to contact Michael (905-615-3200 x5525 / and inform him that you support the efforts and communication of the GWHA.  We encourage you to add additional comments as you see fit; to share your views on the proposed development – but indication of your support of the GWHA is also very important.  More information on this property can be found on our website at   


Kindly submit your comments to Michael by January 10, 2014 - a copy to would be most appreciated.
