1. Deputy City Manager’s Report, Infrastructure Services and Community Sustainability dated 13 May 2010 (ACS2010-ICS-PGM-0107).
That the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee recommend Council approve an amendment to the Zoning By-law 2008-250 to change the zoning for Part of 6519 Third Line Road from Agricultural (AG) to Agricultural Subzone 5, (AG5) as shown in Document 1.
RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’agriculture et des affaires rurales recommande au Conseil d’approuver une modification au Règlement général de zonage no 2008-250 en vue de changer le zonage d’une partie de la propriété située au 6519, chemin Third Line, de Zone agricole (AG) à Sous-zone agricole 5 (AG5), comme le montre le document 1.
The subject parcel is known as Part of 6519 Third Line Road. The 42.5-hectare parcel is in an agricultural area, on the east side of Third Line Road, half a kilometre north of Roger Stevens Drive. The lands that are intended to be rezoned constitute the “retained” agricultural lands on a recent consent application.
The rezoning is required to fulfill a condition of the Committee of Adjustment decision to sever a 4.5-hectare parcel containing a dwelling and outbuildings made surplus through farm consolidation.
The existing zoning of the severed and retained properties is Agricultural (AG). The existing zone recognizes and permits agricultural uses in areas designated “Agricultural Resource Area” in the Official Plan and restricts the range of permitted uses to agricultural, forestry and related accessory uses in order to preserve these prime agricultural lands from loss by other uses.
The retained lands are intended to be zoned Agricultural Subzone 5 (AG5). This zoning permits agricultural uses in areas designated “Agricultural Resource Area,” as above, but prohibit a detached dwelling. This particular subzone represents agricultural lands with a minimum area of 30 hectares and a minimum frontage of 60 metres.
The parcel is designated Agricultural Resource in the Official Plan. The policies permit severance of a dwelling and immediately adjacent outbuildings made surplus through farm consolidation, provided the vacant agricultural parcel is rezoned to prohibit any residential use.
The Committee of Adjustment, in granting the severance of the dwelling and immediately adjacent outbuildings, has required, in accordance with the Official Plan, the retained lands to be rezoned, prior to finalization of the consent. The proposed zoning therefore implements the intent of the Official Plan.
In accordance with the Provincial Policy Statement and the Official Plan, the Committee of Adjustment required that the retained vacant farmland be rezoned to prohibit future residential dwellings.
The Zoning By-law sets up specific zones that prohibit residential uses for these circumstances, depending on the area and frontage associated with the final parcel configuration. In this case, the retained parcel is approximately 38 hectares in area with an approximate frontage of 195 metres. The Agricultural Subzone 5 sets a minimum lot area of 30 hectares and minimum frontage of 60 metres.
No servicing exists on the retained parcel.
The rezoning supports the agricultural community, by permitting a farmer to dispose of a dwelling surplus to his operation, while protecting and preserving the agricultural use of the retained lands, and by prohibiting future dwellings to be constructed thereon.
