Convent shenanigans: UPDATE

Fri May 20, 2011 Miss Vicky 

The proposal to revive the driveway cut-through of the Byron Pathway to the Ashcroft convent development has been removed from Tuesday's Planning Committee agenda. Peter Hume wrote a rather firm letter to the Hampton Iona Community Group, which states that "The November 2010 Council approved direction 'That access for development not be permitted across the Byron Linear Strip and adjacent Parkland' is in full force and effect. There are no plans for the Planning Committee to consider this report at some future date. The matter is now considered closed and as stated earlier the November 2010 Council direction is and remains in full force and effect."

The committee will still need to determine whether there will be an access via Shannon street or elsewhere.

What a bizarre turn of events. While it's gratifying that Hobbs has listened to the community and withdrawn the proposal, it's a little puzzling that she brought forward this initiative in the first place - despite all of the work that had been done by the previous council (much of it during the election period). Her communications to residents, some of which allegedly misrepresent the actions of the previous councillor, clearly attempt to pit neighbours against neighbours. It's a disturbing kind of politics, particularly unfortunate given her good work this week on the Devonshire playground file.

There won't be a rally on Shannon Street tomorrow, but the sign campaign and fundraising for the OMB appeal continues. Check out these tweets from @byronpath

I think the next battle needs to be fundraising for OMB. The appellants need to have case together for June 18. Reduce density & exits

Come to Byron path across from Kensington tomorrow 11-5 and we can try to sort out next steps. Bring cheques for OMB folks. ;)
