Robin Moore of 226 Appleton Court, NEWMARKET, ON  L3Y 0B8, addressed the Committee and provided the following comments:


·         originally applied for the deck permit in April

·         wanted to make the deck larger to fit a hot tub under it

·         there was a misunderstanding with the information received

·         there is a site specific bylaw for the property

·         the permit was issued and later revoked

·         originally wanted a 12’ deck, however, they are going to proceed with a 10’ deck which will meet their minimum requirements

·         understand there is an objection by a neighbour, however, that neighbour is in the set of townhomes closest to Eagle Street and they will never see the deck

Fred Stoneman inquired if everyone on Appleton Court had received a copy of the notice and Secretary-Treasurer advised that everyone on the street had received notification and the sign had been posted in the window facing the street, however, it was not possible to post a notice in the front yard, as the builders are currently doing work on the yards.
