APPLICATION FOR ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (ZBA-03-2020)
- Owner: 1960634 Ontario Inc.
- Agent: Sifton Properties Limited
- Location: Ilderton Road and Stone Field Lane (Block 326 of the Clear Skies subdivision)
- Roll No: 393903408013418
Purpose and Effect of the Applications:
The Municipality is seeking input on a development application within 120 metres of your property. The property is currently zoned as ‘Urban Residential Third Density exception 7 with Hold (UR3-7)(h-6)’. The Holding symbol applies to the land in order to undertake a public site plan review process for the proposed development.
The Zoning By-law Amendment application requests to rezone the lands to a site specific ‘Urban Residential Third Density exception x (UR3-x)’ zone to permit 29 townhouse dwellings within a condominium. Please see below for the proposed plan. The application also requests that the Holding symbol be removed as a result of this public meeting to review the proposed site plan.
Through the Condominium Act, the applicant has also requested an exemption from the requirement to submit an application for approval of draft plan of condominium under the Planning Act. The exemption would allow the public to comprehensively review the merits of the proposed development within a streamlined review process as certain requirements have been or can be fulfilled through the draft approved plan of subdivision 39T-MC1401 for the Clear Skies subdivision, and the requested zoning by-law amendment and public site plan process.
The 29 dwellings would be subject to the requested zoning standards for the site specific ‘Urban Residential Third Density exception x (UR3)’ zone. The standards for this zone are provided below:
