ZONAGE - PARTIE DU 4256, CHEMIN 2nd LINE
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 4256 2nd Line Road from Agricultural Zone Subzone 2 (AG2) to Agricultural Zone Subzone 6 (AG6) 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 faire passer le zonage d’une partie de la propriété située au 4256, chemin 2nd Line, de Zone agricole Sous-zone 2 (AG2) à Zone agricole Sous-zone 6 (AG6), comme le montre le document 1.
The subject lands are known as 4256 2nd Line Road and are located on the west side of 2nd Line Road. They constitute the “retained” agricultural lands on a recent consent application.
The purpose of the Zoning Amendment is to fulfill a condition of approval for the severance of a farm surplus residence.
The land to be severed will have a frontage of 20.34 metres on 2nd Line Road to an irregular depth of 662.8 metres and will contain a lot area of 7.8 hectares. It will contain the single-family dwelling, the barn and two sheds. The land to be retained will have a frontage of 49.57 metres on 2nd Line Road to an irregular depth of 1232.47 metres and will contain a lot area of 21.34 hectares.
The existing zoning of the severed and retained parcels is Agricultural Zone Subzone 2 (AG2). This zoning recognizes and permits agricultural uses on a minimum lot area of 18 hectares 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 rezoned from Agricultural Zone Subzone 2 (AG2) to Agricultural Zone Subzone 6 (AG6). 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 18 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.
Minor Variances were granted by the Committee of Adjustment to permit reduced lot widths of respectively 20.34 metres and 49.57 metres for the severed (D08-02-10/A-00100) and the retained parcels (D08-02-10/A-00101).
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.
The rezoning supports the agricultural community.
