Bennett Health Care Centre's (BHCC) plan to build a seniors housing complex took a significant step forward when Halton Hills council approved the Master Development Agreement. BHCC plans to build an agein-place seniors complex that will eventually include two lifelease apartment buildings, a 128bed long-term care facility and a 100-unit supportive care facility on the property on Princess Anne Dr., across from the hospital. First phase, which the nonprofit began selling last spring, is one of the apartment buildings called The Gallery at Bennett Village. BHCC hopes to begin construction this fall with occupancy in 2008. The building's design has been slightly revised, and an additional five units have been added to the building for a total of 105. Council agreed to allocate water from the residential infill pool for these extra units. The Master Development Agreement is a combination of planning processes done in coordination such as a severance application, site plan approval, financing of the joint road between BHCC and the Town, use of a temporary stormwater pond on Town land until the real one is built, deferral of development charges to May 2008, and finally, the release of the building permit when the first coat of asphalt is on the road. The Town's financial share of the road is $160,000. The next steps include the road construction and the temporary storm water pond.
