RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’urbanisme recommande au Conseil d’approuver une modification au Règlement de zonage 2008-250 en vue de faire passer le zonage du 4268, 4300, chemin Fallowfield et d’une partie du 2810, chemin Cedarview de Zone d’aménagement futur (DR) à Zone résidentielle de densité 3, sous-zone Z (R3Z), R3Z [XXXX], Zone résidentielle de densité 3, sous-zone Z, exception [XXXX] et O1 (Zone de parc et d’espace vert), tel qu’illustré dans le document 1 et exposé en détail dans le document 2.
The subject site is located at 4268, 4300 Fallowfield Road and 2810 Cedarview Road south of Fallowfield Road, east of Strandherd Drive, west of Cedarview Road and north of the future Jockvale Road extension. The legal description of the property is Part of Lots 19 and 20, Concession 4 (Rideau Front).
The site is approximately 13.83 hectares in size and is within the developing community of Barrhaven. The site contains recent and active agricultural fields and a small woodlot (approximately 1.0 hectares) located at the southwest corner of the site. This woodlot was identified as Urban Natural Area (UNA) #53.To the north of the site is the existing residential community of Orchard Estates. To the east is Cedarview Middle School and to the south are other lands designated for residential development. To the west, there is a proposed Prestige Business Park and on the east side of Cedarview Road is well established urban residential development.
A serviced residential subdivision is proposed at the subject site consisting of approximately 273 units consisting of 101 single detached units, 127 semi-detached units and 45 townhouse units.
The subject lands are currently zoned Development Reserve (DR), which is intended to recognize lands for future urban development while allowing limited interim uses including agricultural, conservation, and rural residential.
Purpose of Zoning Amendment
The lands have recently received draft approval of a Plan of Subdivision and require a zoning amendment to permit the proposed development of a fully serviced residential subdivision. Included in the rezoning is a small portion land that forms part of the draft approved subdivision to the south owned by Claridge Homes. This portion was required to complete 10 lots which have frontage within the Subdivision owned by 1578051 Ontario Inc.
The proposed amendment will rezone the lands from DR to R3Z Residential Third Density Sub‑Zone Z, which permits a wide range of residential uses including single detached dwellings, semi-detached dwellings and row dwellings; R3Z [XXXX] (Residential Third Density Sub-Zone Z, exception [XXXX]), the proposed exception will reduce the minimum rear yard setback from 6.0m to 5.0m to accommodate a wider range of housing options on certain lots and blocks. A neighbourhood park which includes the majority of the woodlot will be zoned Parks and Open Space Zone (O1).
Provincial Policy Statement
The Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) provides direction on matters of Provincial interest related to land-use planning and development by promoting efficient land use patterns that support development of viable, liveable communities. Contained within the policy statement are explicit policy objectives that focus on growth in settlement areas, providing an appropriate range of housing with densities that efficiently use land resources (infrastructure and public service facilities), promoting public transit and other alternative transportation modes and creating healthy and active communities.
The proposed development is consistent with the objective and policies of the PPS and provides new residential development that makes efficient use of available and projected infrastructure services.
The subject lands are designated as General Urban Area in the Official Plan. 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 South Nepean Urban Area Secondary Plan (Areas 9 and 10) policies apply to these lands. Schedule A of the Plan designates this area for residential land use as well as a neighbourhood park. A variety of housing types including single detached dwellings, semi-detached dwellings, row dwellings and apartment dwellings are permitted in areas that are designated for residential land use.
The proposed Zoning By-law amendment is consistent with the policies of the Provincial Policy Statement, the Official Plan and objectives of the South Nepean Urban Area Secondary Plan.
The proposed development supplies a range of housing types which are supported by a transportation network that blends with the existing roads, promotes safe pedestrian movement, satisfies the requirement for a neighbourhood park, while also preserving a large portion of the existing woodlot (Urban Natural Area #53) within a neighbourhood park. The proposed exception allows for a minor reduction in the rear yard setback permitting greater flexibility of housings options on specific lots due to limitations within the site. The resulting development is compatible with the surrounding uses and merges seamlessly with the existing residential area of Barrhaven.
Staff recommend approval of an amendment to the Zoning By-law to permit the development of a fully serviced subdivision as outlined in Document 2.
4268 and 4300 Fallowfield Road (1578051 Ontario Inc.) Draft Plan of (Serviced) Subdivision D07-16-08-0022 draft approved September 7, 2011.
2810 Cedarview Road (Claridge Homes) Draft Plan of (Serviced) Subdivision D07-16-08-0010 draft approved August 11, 2011.
The Ward Councillor did not express any concerns with regard to this proposal.
There are no legal implications associated with this report.
RISK MANAGEMENT IMPLICATIONS
The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) has reviewed the proposed zoning amendment in the context of the related plan of subdivision. RVCA comments have been incorporated as part of the subdivision review, and the zoning is to be consistent with the draft approved Plan of Subdivision.
The proposed amendment is consistent with the City’s Strategic Plan as the development can be integrated seamlessly into the surrounding community.
The application was not processed by the "On Time Decision Date" established for the processing of Zoning By-law amendments. The application was put on hold until the accompanying subdivision application was at a stage in the review and approval process where no major changes were anticipated in order to ensure that additional modifications to the zoning would not be required.
