Deputy City Manager's report, Infrastructure Services and Community Sustainability, dated 15 December 2011 (ACS2012-ICS-PGM-0002).
That the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee recommend Council approve an amendment to the Zoning By-law 2008-250 to change the zoning of 254 Vances Side Road from RC[221r] (Rural Commercial) to RR5 (Rural Residential, Subzone 5).
RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’agriculture et des affaires rurales recommande au Conseil d’approuver une modification au Règlement de zonage 2008-250 en vue de changer le zonage de la propriété située au 254, chemin Vances Side, de RC[221r] (Zone de commerces ruraux) à RR5 (Zone résidentielle rurale, sous-zone 5).
The subject land is located on the eastern quadrant of the intersection of Vances Side Road and the Baskins Beach Road Allowance. The site is currently vacant, surrounded by residential uses to the north, east and west and rural uses to the south.
The subject land has a frontage of 70 metres along Vances Side Road and 66 metres on Baskins Beach Road allowance and an area of approximately 0.43 hectares.
Purpose of Zoning Amendment
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone the lands for residential purposes similar to the zoning of surrounding properties.
The current zoning of the parcel is RC(221r) (Rural Commercial, Rural Exception 221r) under Zoning By-law 2008-250. This exception zone limits commercial uses to a medical facility and office. Accessory dwelling units are also permitted.
The requested zoning amendment proposes to rezone the property from RC(221r) (Rural Commercial, Rural Exception 221r) to RR5 (Rural Residential, Subzone 5). This zone acknowledges existing smaller lot development in areas designated as General Rural Area in the Official Plan and permits residential- uses as well as related and accessory uses.
This particular subzone represents residential development with a minimum area of 0.4 hectares and a minimum frontage of 45 metres.
According to the Official Plan, the subject land is designated General Rural Area. This designation accommodates a variety of land uses that are appropriate for a rural location and a limited amount of residential development where such development will not preclude continued agricultural and non-residential uses.
The site is zoned RC[221r], which accommodates a range of commercial uses.
The proposed zoning (RR5) will acknowledge existing smaller lot development prevailing in Baskins Beach and regulate development in a manner that respects the residential character of the area. The RR5 zone permits a minimum lot area of 0.4 hectares and lot width of 45 metres. Under these provisions, the subject lot could not further be divided.
The surrounding properties are also zoned RR5, therefore the proposed zoning of this property matches the zoning of the neighbouring parcels.
The subject land will be limited to residential and accessory uses. By limiting the type of residential uses, the character of the general rural area will be maintained. The effect of this rezoning will be to enhance the rural heritage and fortify the rural residential landscape.
