“We live next door to a large new house that replaced a beautiful one in excellent condition.
This new house, contrary to the bylaw, does not meet the requirement that the bulk and size of new developement is similiar to existing developement. Nor is it as required, compatible with the existing amenity and design of developement. City Planning approved this contrary to the neighborhood objections.
It has been empty since its construction about 2 years ago.
The owners live in another house nearby.
In this block there are now 3 houses that have been empty for several years.”
