In a letter dated September 14 to Paul Calandra, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) calls the Rand Estate a “unique” and a “provincially significant heritage asset”. The CLSA, which is the voice of landscape architects in Canada, noted the significant involvement of the seminal husband and wife Dunnington-Grubb design team in the layout and designed landscape of Randwood. The CLSA urged a “balanced approach” in considering residential development at the Rand Estate.
SORE welcomes and is grateful for the support of the CSLA in relation to the Marotta subdivision proposal. A complete copy of the CLSA letter can be read below.
