  • LOCATION: Kilworth; Edgewater Estates Subdivision (File No. 39T-MC0902)

Purpose and Effect of this Application:

The Edgewater Estates Plan of Subdivision was approved March 6, 2012 and the development of the first phase of the subdivision is underway. The owner has requested that the remaining phases of the development be subject to an amended plan of subdivision and also that the zoning of the property be changed to reflect the requested amended plan of subdivision.

The subject property is located south of Glendon Drive (County Road 14) and west of Westbrook Drive, in the village of Kilworth. The land is legally described as Part of Lots 7 and 8, Concession 1, Part of Lot 7, Broken Front Concession (geographic Township of Lobo), Municipality of Middlesex Centre.

What is being proposed through the applications?

The approved draft plan of subdivision includes residential lots; in the undeveloped phases - 39 residential lots in form of single detached dwellings, seven residential development blocks, a local road network and blocks for open space, trails and storm water management facilities (mostly located in the registered Phase 1). The owner is now proposing to develop one of the development blocks for single detached dwellings as well as make changes to the road network and various blocks. If approved, the revised draft Plan of Subdivision would include approximately 118 residential lots in the form of single detached dwellings and six (6) future development block within Phase 2.
 
The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment proposes to establish the ‘Urban Residential First Density’ (UR1) with Holding Symbol (H1) on a 0.859 hectares corridor of land fronting Edgewater Boulevard previously identified as Block 158. These lands would accommodate eight residential lots (Lots 111 to 118). The Zoning By-law Amendment further proposes to amend the boundaries of the current ‘Urban Residential First Density’ (UR1) and Open Space (OS) and ‘Urban Residential Second Density’ (UR2) with Holding Symbol (H1) zones that were part of the previously approved redline revision. Lastly, adjust the zoning of the boundary for the entrance to Block 244. This is to reflect the removal of the public road and replace it with a private entrance to the multiple residential block. As such, the zoning is to be changed to ‘Urban Residential First Density’ (UR1) with Holding Symbol (H1) to align with the balance of the Block. Please see the attached proposed illustrative Zoning map.
