LPAT (Formerly OMB) Pre-Hearing Dates Set

The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (formerly known as the Ontario Municipal Board) is beginning to set pre-hearing dates for various appeals for non-decision in planning applications across Hamilton.

Non-Decision Appeals are those made by developers prior to Council debating a matter due to provisions in the Planning Act requiring Council to make a decision in either 120 or 180 days after an application is submitted. Few applications are ever reviewed by staff and voted upon at Council in these timelines. As there is no Council debate prior to non-decision appeals, the LPAT hearing is the only opportunity for members of the public to have their voices heard.

If you wish to speak to an appeal, you must attend the pre-hearing date. If you cannot attend, contact the LPAT case coordinator to see what alternative opinions may be available to you.

195 Wellington Street South

Medallion Developments is proposing a 20 story residential tall building on a portion of the property which is presenting the site of a low-storey apartment complex. The pre-hearing date is October 22nd, 10am, at the Old Courthouse downtown at 50 Main Street East.
October 22nd is the date of the municipal election, and the pre-hearing is scheduled by LPAT, not the City or appealing party.

This hearing will be under old OMB rules as the appeal was filed prior to December 12, 2018.
