AGRICULTURE AND RURAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE REPORT 51
COMPREHENSIVE ZONING BY-LAW 2008-250:
DE ZONAGE général 2008-250 :
pLANNING AND eNVIRONMENT Committee RecommendationS as amended
That Council approve the amendments recommended in Column 3 of Document 1, to correct anomalies in Zoning By-law 2008-250 as amended by the following:
1. That Document 1, Item 18, Column 3 be amended to read: “maximum driveway width is 3.05 m at the street lot line, and in the case of a semi-circular driveway, the maximum driveway width, for both accesses combined, must not exceed 6.1 metres.”
2. That Document 1 be amended to add a new Item 20, as follows:
Objective of Amendment
20. Certain lands located on Friendly Crescent, Shining Star Circle, Brightside Drive, Hopetown Steet and Hartsmere Drive
In the former Goulbourn Zoning By-law, the lands were zoned R1-6, exception 6 reducing the lot width and area and establishing different setbacks from the R1 zone. The new R1T zone most closely approximated the lot width of the former exception zone, and a new exception zone, exception 721, was created to reflect the other modified performance standards. Unfortunately, when the new zone was affixed to the zoning map, it became R1D and the old exception zone number 6 was retained, rather than applying the “T” subzone and the new exception number 721.
Reference to the RID zone in exception 6 should be removed. Additionally, there was no maximum front yard setback in the former Goulbourn zoning, so this provision should be deleted.
Amend the Zoning Map to rezone the R1Dzone to R1T as shown on the attached map.
Amend Section 239, Column II to remove the zone reference R1D in exception 6.
Amend Section 239, Column IV to remove the words “-maximum front yard setback 6 m” in exception 721.
3. That a map be added to Document 3, that identifies the lands that are being re-zoned in Item 20 of Document 1.
4. That there be no further notice pursuant to Section 34 (17) of the Planning Act.
Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee Recommendation
