We received an application for changes to the planned community at the Links at Brunello in Timberlea. If approved, the changes would:
• Remove a designated site on Amalfi Way that had been reserved for a future school; and
• Allow residential development on the former school site.
The development plans linked below illustrate the requested changes.
Existing Development Agreement
The planned community was permitted through a development agreement originally approved in 2002. It permits a mixed-use golf community including different types of dwellings (apartment buildings, duplexes, townhouses and houses) and commercial uses surrounding the Links at Brunello Golf Course in Timberlea.
The application will follow the Non-Substantive Amendment to Development Agreement process.
At the request of Halifax and West Community Council, the applicant and Halifax Regional Centre for Education (HRCE) are exploring the land as a potential school site. Once a conclusion on the need for the land by HRCE has been reached the webpage will be updated.
Staff are completing a detailed review of the application. The next step in the process will be for staff to write a recommendation report for Halifax and West Community Council.
The Halifax and West Community Council will decide whether to approve or deny the application based on the criteria in the Timberlea/Lakeside/Beechville Municipal Planning Strategy. As a non-substantive amendment, this application does not require a public hearing.
The subject site is located in District 12 – Timberlea – Beechville – Clayton Park - Wedgewood.
