If the Lansdowne Partnership Plan goes forward, Robert Martin believes his home on Holmwood Avenue will be shrouded in shadows by the “100-foot wall of development” that will be built across the street.

Yesterday, Martin was one of 23 people who spoke to the city’s planning committee against the proposed zoning amendments at Lansdowne Park.

Those shadow predictions are based on the worst time of year, said architect Barry Hobin.

“In the majority of the year, the north side of Holmwood Avenue would have minimal impact in terms of sunlight,” he said.

The outcome was expected prior to the meeting, said Coun. Clive Doucet, but by registering their concerns with the committee, it opens the door for residents to challenge the changes at the Ontario Municipal Board.
