New Hearing Date for Kingsway Entertainment District Planning Appeal

11-Jun-2020

The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) has set a new hearing date for the Kingsway Entertainment District (KED) planning appeal. The hearing, originally scheduled for May 5, 2020 was delayed due to COVID-19. The parties involved with the LPAT proceedings met via teleconference June 10, 2020, and a new date for the hearing was set for September 17 and 18, 2020. 

There is also an application related to the KED before the Superior Court of Justice which is scheduled to be heard on June 29 and 30, 2020. If the Superior Court of Justice issues a decision shortly after the hearing, it is possible that the LPAT hearing could be moved to August 2020.

The LPAT hearing has been reduced from four days to two due to the virtual format of the proceedings. Witnesses will be sent written questions and will submit written responses prior to the hearing rather than being questioned in-person by the LPAT members. This change reduced the amount of days required for the hearing. 

More information on the public viewing of both the Superior Court of Justice and the LPAT hearings will be provided once it becomes available.
