The Town of Ajax is in receipt of Official Plan Amendment OPA22-A1 and Zoning Bylaw Amendment Z1/22 applications submitted by Weston Consulting on behalf of 1613935 Ontario Inc., to facilitate the future development of vacant unaddressed lands located on the north side of Ravenscroft Road, northeast of Paulynn Park, and south of Duffins Creek. The proposal consists of 48 back-to-back stacked townhouse units within 4 blocks, with underground and surface parking. The future submission of a Site Plan Application and a Draft Plan of Condominium Application will be required to facilitate the proposed development.

The purpose of the Official Plan Amendment is to re-designate a portion of the subject lands from the Low Density Residential and Environmental Protection designations to the Medium Density Residential designation with an Area Specific Policy that permits back-to-back stacked townhouse units at a density of 76 units per net hectare. The purpose of the Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the lands from the Agricultural (A) Zone and Private Open Space (POS) Zone to Environmental Protection (EP) Zone and Residential Multiple Six (RM6) Zone with additional permitted uses and site specific development standards to accommodate the development.
