The application would consider the re-zoning of the subject property from ‘Hamlet Residential First Density exception 1 (HR1-1)’ to a site-specific ‘Highway Commercial exception # (C2-#)’ zone. The effect of this zoning by-law amendment application would permit the use of a self storage establishment and all other uses within the Highway Commercial (C2) zone. In addition, the amendment would recognize a minimum of seven parking spaces, reduced front yard setback of 13.4 m (44 ft) from Gold Creek Drive and reduced side yard setback of 7.2 m (23.6 ft) from Egremont Drive.

The existing vacant lot abuts Gold Creek Drive and Egremont Drive and is approximately 0.4 ha (1.0 ac) in area. The zoning by-law amendment would permit the development of two 1-storey self storage buildings with a total area of 1296 m2 (13, 950 ft2) which includes an office space, meeting room and washrooms. The proposed buildings will be oriented parallel to Egremont Drive in an east-west manner. They will be setback a minimum of 6.1 m (20 ft) from the abutting agricultural lands to the south, and 10.1 m (33.1 ft) from the existing residence located east of the subject property. Seven parking spaces will be provided along the north portion of the site adjacent to Egremont Drive and one entrance will be provided from Gold Creek Drive using an existing driveway entrance. The proposal includes chain-link fencing around the west, north and southern lot lines. Woodboard fencing and a cedar hedgerow is proposed on the east lot line abutting the residence.  No outdoor storage of property (e.g. vehicles, boats) is proposed. The proposal will also be subject to site plan approval.
