Semi-detached on 204 Dew Street

Nov 4, 2022 | Developments, Uncategorized | 1 comment

At November 7th Committee of Whole there is report recommending approval of an Official Plan and  Zoning Bylaw Amendments and construction of 8 semi-detached residential units (i.e. 4 separate buildings)  at 204 Dew Street.  I know that many in the immediate area objected strongly to the original proposal to build multiple units on one lot and I suspect that there will still be dissatisfaction even though there has been a dramatic change as single detached are no longer being considered; at the second public meeting in April 2021 the semi-detached format was included and since then there have further changes to details.  Its good to have this housing format built in King City.  I think the selected architectural style is unfortunate; a more contemporary one would be better and I think it would make this enclave to feel more spacious.

If you wish to make a deputation to Council you can register to make a deputation to Council by registering at by noon on November 7.  Alternatively you can send in comments or questions to and your email will be circulated to Council and relevant Staff members.

    Thank you for sharing the info on this affair. while, I am still surprised and disappointed that this proposal has been passed. even through it has made some improvements compared to the original plan, cramming eight semi-detached houses into a single lot is simply too much. It will completely disrupt the layout of the houses in the neighbourhood, and the added concern is that there only has one traffic light at the exit from William Street to King Road, which means that all the neighbourhood’s vehicles and incoming traffic will have to go through that one exit, leading to serious traffic congestion and seriously affecting the quality of life for the neighbourhood’s residents on Dew St.

    In addition to these concerns, there are other worries such as whether the new road being built will be able to serve as a fire route, and whether the requirements for weekly garbage truck access have been properly considered.
