Burnie has no plans yet to bring apartment building plans to Petrolia Council


David Burnie has no plans yet to move his planned apartment building forward.
Burnie owns the iconic Petrolia mansion known widely as Fairbank House. He has plans to build a 16-unit apartment building on site. The town’s committee of adjustment approved the idea of two buildings on the property but then an appeal of the decision was made to the Ontario Municipal Board. It was recently withdrawn by the objector.
When reached by phone, Burnie told The Independent he has no immediate plans to move the project forward by filing a site plan agreement for council to review.
And he wasn’t sure if that would happen this summer either, citing “too many other issues” to deal with first.
