RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de recommande au Conseil d'approuver une modification du Règlement municipal de zonage 2008 250 afin de changer la désignation de zonage des 3895, chemin Greenbank de DR (Zone d’aménagement futur) à R1Z (Zone résidentielle de densité 1), comme il est indiqué dans le Document 1.
The site, 3895 Greenbank Road, is located east of Greenbank Road at the south end of urban area boundary. It is immediately adjacent to the Stonebridge development Phase 12.
Currently, the 0.17 ha land contains a one-storey, single detached, rural residential building with an access from Greenbank Road. To the north and east are planned residential lands which are zoned R1Z; to the west are vacant urban lands for future development; to the south are rural lands.
Purpose of Zoning Amendment
The intention is to rezone the subject land from Development Reserve (DR) to Residential First Density Subzone Z (R1Z) to allow development of three single detached homes.
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.
Details of Proposed Zoning
The proposed zoning is Residential First Density Zone; subzone Z (R1Z), which restricts the built form to single detached dwellings. The intention of the proposal is to construct three single detached dwellings with access from local street Pinawa Circle.
The proposal is in harmony with the intent of Official Plan policies and compatible with the surrounding community. The proposed R1Z zone is consistent with the existing zoning of the Stonebridge Phase 12 development immediately adjacent to the site. The three lots to be created will be integrated into the fabric of the overall Stonebridge development. As a consequence of the proposed development, a 13-metre strip of land will be dedicated to the Greenbank Road right-of-way.
The proposal is appropriate for the subject property and adjacent public roadway. Staff recommend approval.
Consent to sever the property to create three additional lots have been granted by the Committee of Adjustment with conditions to fulfill (File No. D08-01-11/B-00209-212).
The subject property is adjacent to General Rural Area to the south. Given the small scale and straight forward nature of the proposal there are no rural implications associated with this report.
The Ward Councillor has no objections.
There are no legal implications associated with this report.
RISK MANAGEMENT IMPLICATIONS
There are no environmental implications associated with this report.
The proposed development is in harmony with the City Strategic Plan in that it provides a compatible development with the surrounding area.
