Abstract

An overview is given on the development of a residential subdivision within lands that were formerly used as a hydro transmission corridor. The lands located between Highway 401 and Lowcrest Boulevard will consist of twelve two-storey dwelling units fronting on Lowcrest Boulevard, and a stormwater management pond, located between the rear yards and the Highway 401 right-of-way. Key to the approval of the project is a noise control study intended to recommend appropriate outdoor and indoor noise control measures for these lands.
