Split decision on Evergreen

The Ontario Municipal Board has approved severance of the property at 21 Evergreen Gardens and an increase in living space, but turned down a request for increased height.

Save Our Bennington had opposed all requests of the developer for the property bordering Evergreen Gardens Park.

The floor space index will increase from 0.6 to 0.67 and lot coverage from 35 to 38.2 percent.

But the height of the two new properties on the severed 95-foot lot will be the permitted 8.5 metres, says the developer.
