De­vel­op­ment plans for Henry Street land

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

City coun­cil­lors are sup­port­ing plans to re­de­velop a 74-hectare par­cel of land on Henry Street. Coun­cil­lors are back­ing a zon­ing by­law amend­ment needed for the de­vel­op­ment of 17 in­dus­trial blocks on the prop­erty on the north side of Henry and east of Wayne Gret­zky Park­way. Five build­ings used by var­i­ous in­dus­tries are al­ready on the site. The for­mer Massey-Fer­gu­son man­u­fac­tur­ing plant is also on the site. The pro­posal was rec­om­mended for ap­proval by city staff who said the de­vel­op­ment of the lands will pro­vide em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. The fu­ture use of the land, which hasn't been de­ter­mined, is com­pat­i­ble with sur­round­ing land uses, coun­cil­lors were told.
