The OMB today confirmed that my request for a review of the OMB’s decision on Glenway cannot proceed.
In an email, the OMB’s case co-ordinator for Glenway, Tome Kondinski, confirms that under the OMB’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (110-119) non-Parties cannot appeal a Board decision.
“… only Parties are afforded the right to seek a request for review of a Board decision and no other avenue is open to non-Parties in the foregoing.”
This is very disappointing. Perhaps the forthcoming wide-ranging review of the OMB will consider third party rights. I hope so.
The Parties to the OMB Glenway Hearing in March and April 2014 were: Marianneville Developments Limited; Town of Newmarket; Glenway Preservation Association; Region of York and the York Region School Board.
