BACKGROUND

 

The subject lands are located to the south of Jock River, flanked by Jockvale Road to the east and Cambrian Road to the south.  The 3.43-hectare vacant lands are part of Stonebridge Phase 10 North subdivision that is comprised of a mix of lots for single detached, multiple attached and blocks for stacked townhouses.  The subdivision was draft approved on July 11, 2008.  Existing and planned residential developments surround the site.

 

Purpose of Zoning Amendment

 

The proposal is to rezone the land to accommodate residential development consisting of 20 single detached houses, 30 street townhouses, 26 stacked townhouses and a public park.

 

Existing Zoning

 

The subject site is currently designated Development Reserve Zone (DR) under the Comprehensive Zoning By-law and Future Growth Zone (FG) under the former City of Nepean Urban Area Zoning By-law.  The purpose of the two zones is to recognize lands intended for future urban development while allowing limited interim uses including agricultural, conservation, and rural residential.

 

Proposed Zoning

 

Under the Comprehensive Zoning By-law, the proposed zones are Parks and Open Space Zone (O1) to allow a public park, Residential First Density Sub Zone Z (R1Z) to allow 20 single detached houses, Residential Third Density Sub Zone Z (R3Z) to allow 30 street townhouses, and Residential Fourth Density Sub Zone Z (R4Z) to allow 26 stacked townhouses.

 

Under the former City of Nepean Urban Area Zoning By-law, the proposed zones are Parks and Recreation Public Zone (PRP), Residential Mixed Unit Zone (RMU), Residential Fifth “B” Density Zone (R5B), and Residential Sixth “A” Density Zone (R6A), respectively.

 

Revisions to the Original Application

 

In the original application as submitted on May 14, 2008, the proposal included a public park, 20 single detached houses, 31 street townhouses, 12 stacked townhouses and 16 walk-up units.  On August 8, 2008, the applicant decided to revise the proposal to exclude all walk-up units, remove one street townhouse and add 14 stacked townhouses.  This modification does not change the application in nature because the proposed zones remain the same.  Additionally, as requested by staff, the boundary of Area E was adjusted to include the required parking.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Official Plan

 

The Official Plan designates the property General Urban Area.  This designation permits the development of a full range and choice of housing types to meet the needs of all ages, incomes and life circumstances, in combination with conveniently located employment, retail, service, cultural leisure and institutional uses.

 

The Council approved Barrhaven South Community Design Plan (CDP) is a statutory document that complements Official Plan policies and provides more detailed guidance regarding the form and character of Barrhaven South.  The site is located on the eastern edge of the CDP Sub‑Planning Area 1.  Under the CDP the subject lands are predominantly designated Medium Density Residential.  It permits all forms of ground-oriented multiple dwellings, including street and stacked townhouses.

 

Details of Proposed Zoning

 

Comprehensive Zoning By-law

 

The proposed zoning for Area A (as shown on Document 1) is Parks and Open Space Zone (O1).  The proposed zoning for Area B is Residential Third Density Sub Zone Z (R3Z) that permits only detached dwellings.  A provision is made to specify the maximum accessory building height.  The proposed zoning for Area C and Area D is Residential Third Density Sub Zone Z (R3Z).  This zone permits detached, semi-detached and multiple attached dwellings.  The site-specific zone provisions would specify a maximum projection of 2.7 metres from a garage front wall to a main wall or covered porch.  An additional provision would be made to the R3Z zone for Area D to allow interim parking and access serving Area E until such time as Area D is to be developed.  The proposed zoning for Area E is Residential Fourth Density Sub Zone Z (R4Z) with exceptions.  This zone permits single detached, semi-detached and multiple-attached dwellings, as well as stacked townhouses and planned unit developments.  The site-specific zone provisions would specify a maximum building height of 13 metres, minimum yard setbacks and provisions for permitted encroachments.  An additional provision would be made to the R4Z zone to allow interim parking and access to be located on Area D.

 

Former City of Nepean Urban Area Zoning By-law

 

The proposed zoning for Area A is Parks and Recreation (Public) Zone (PRP).  The proposed zoning for Area B is Residential Mixed Unit Zone (RMU) Block 4 that permits only detached dwellings.  A provision is made to specify the maximum accessory building height.  The proposed zoning for Area C and D is Residential Fifth “B” Density Zone (R5B).  This zone permits multiple attached dwellings and converted rooming houses.  The site-specific provisions would specify the maximum lot coverage, building height, minimum interior yard, and provisions for permitted obstructions.  An additional provision would be made to the R5B zone for Area D to allow interim parking and access serving Area E until such time as Area D is to be developed.  The proposed zoning for Area E is Residential Sixth “A” Density Zone (R6A).  This zone permits apartments and converted rooming houses.  The site-specific provisions would specify a maximum building height of 13 metres, the maximum lot coverage, minimum yard setbacks and provisions for permitted obstructions.  An additional provision would be made to the R6A zone to allow interim parking and access to be located on Area D.

 

Analysis

 

The proposed development consists of various dwelling types from singles and street townhouses to stacked townhouses.  It is consistent with the policies as outlined in the Official Plan and Barrhaven South CDP in that the new neighbourhood will provide a range of housing options and opportunities.

 

The site is adjacent to two arterial roads.  The location and proposed land use complies with the CDP Policy 5.1.2 that Medium Density Residential shall be focused along arterial and collector roads, major intersections, and neighbourhood focal points.

 

The overall residential density of the area is 38 net units per hectare, which meets the density target of 37.3 net units per hectare for the Sub-Planning Area 1 as set out in the CDP.  This is in agreement with the CDP Policy 5.1.2 that single detached houses can be permitted in the Medium Density Residential area provided the target densities in the sub-planning areas are achieved.

 

The subject lands are located in the Stonebridge Subdivision Phase 10 North and surrounded by residential uses.  To the east and south, lands are zoned R1A – First Density Residential and R3Z – Third Density Residential; to the west and north, lands are zoned DR – Development Reserve.  The proposed R1Z and R3Z zones are in harmony with the existing zones.

 

The proposed R6A zone, which is new to the area, is to allow stacked townhouses and will permit a maximum building height of 13 meters.  Comparing to the surrounding zones that permit a maximum building height of 11 metres, the increase in height is minimal and the impact is insignificant.  The proposed stacked townhouses will have similar qualities with respect to their setbacks, massing and character as nearby street townhouse units.

 

Conclusion

 

The proposed land use conforms to the applicable policies as outlined within the Official Plan and Community Design Plan.  The proposed provisions are generally minor in nature; the provisions to the setbacks and encroachments help promote an enhanced street presence; and the provisions to the building height help improve the compatibility of the proposed development.  The Department supports this application.

 

CONSULTATION

 

Notice of this application was carried out in accordance with the City's Public Notification and Consultation Policy.  The Ward Councillor is aware of this application and the staff recommendation.  Details of the consultation are shown in Document 3.

CONSULTATION DETAILS                                                                                DOCUMENT 3

 

NOTIFICATION AND CONSULTATION PROCESS

 

Notification and public consultation was undertaken in accordance with the Public Notification and Public Consultation Policy approved by City Council for Zoning By-law amendments.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

The following comments were received as a result of the public notification:

 

The proposed urban flats do not blend in with surrounding area (mainly singles).

 

Response to Public Comments

 

The applicant has decided to eliminate all walk-up flat units and replace them with stacked townhouses.  The modified application now includes 20 singles, 30 street townhouses and 26 stacked townhouses.

 

Summery of COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION COMMENTS

Stonebridge Community Association

 

1)      The proposed 4/3 storey buildings are not reasonably located – from the City sponsored forums on intensification we were advised that outside the greenbelt intensification will happen primarily along the proposed rapid transit corridor with particular focus near actual BRT stations.

2)      The proposed 4/3 storey buildings will have “towering” effect to our community.

3)      The proposal is going to "densify" automobile numbers.  We are already anticipating serious traffic issues at Jockvale/Cambrian due to the high concentration of housing in this area  (current & future) and long before either is 4-laned as planned.

4)      The proposed 4/3 storey dwellings are the only stacked units in the entire community east of existing Greenbank Road.  These units are out of place and incompatible with the surrounding.

5)      We would also be interested in knowing how many clusters will be built for these proposed 26 stacked and confirmation on parking plan.

 

Response to Community organization Comments

 

1)      The location of the proposed development is consistent with the Official Plan and CDP land use designation and policies.

 

2)      The height of the proposed stacked townhouses has been adjusted from originally proposed 15 metres to about 12.6 metres.  Comparing to the neighbouring zones that permit a maximum building height of 11 metres, the increase is acceptable.  The distance between the stacked townhouses and existing single detached homes is about 70 metres; extensive landscaping will be provided along Jockvale Road. 

 

3)      A Traffic Impact Study (TIS) for Stonebridge Subdivision Phase 10 to 12 concludes that the intersection of Jockvale Road and Cambrian Road will operate at acceptable levels of service during the weekday morning and afternoon peak hours of traffic at the 2018 study horizon year.

4)      Over time, medium-density developments (i.e. stacked townhouses) can be expected in appropriate areas in the Stonebridge development.  High-density development (i.e. apartments) can be expected in areas such as community core and within close proximity to transit stations.

5)      Two “clusters” of stacked townhouses are proposed in this application.  39 parking spaces are required under the former City of Nepean Zoning By-law.  Design of the parking area, as well as architecture details will be further reviewed during the site plan control, which is also subject to public notification.
