demolition application for 123 Dupont Street to you to recommend to City Council whether to grant or refuse the
application, including conditions, if any, to be attached to the permit.
Financial Implications and Impact Statement:
That City Council authorize me to issue the residential demolition permit for 123 Dupont Street, after the applicant has
obtained a building permit to erect a new building, subject to the standard conditions as set out in chapter 146-16B(5) of
the Municipal Code, specifically:
A) That the applicant for the permit construct and substantially complete the new building to be erected on the site of the

property is commenced.
B) That, on failure to complete the new building within the time specified, the City Clerk shall be entitled to enter on the
collector's roll, to be collected in like manner as municipal taxes, the sum of twenty-thousand dollars ($20,000.00) for each

On April 8, 1999, Peter Lloyd-Jones applied for a permit to demolish the residential building at 123 Dupont Street. The
existing vacant residential building is semi-detached house containing one dwelling unit. The applicant has applied for
non-residential demolition of the existing adjacent building at 115-121 Dupont Street. The review of this file is underway.
An expected replacement new structure building permit application has not been made yet. As of this date the Department
has not received any objections from the area Councillors or the community.
The applicant wants to demolish the building, prior to the issuance of a building permit for new building.
The structure is neither designated under the Ontario Heritage Act nor listed on the City's Inventory of Heritage Properties.
