DETAILS OF THESE APPLICATIONS:

These Applications are proposing to:

  1. Change the designation of the subject lands from a “Major Open Space” designation to an “Urban Residential” designation. The boundary of the OPA follows the zoning boundaries; and
  2. Change the zoning on five (5) areas of the subject lands (as shown on the map below) from:
  •  Area 1 – Major Open Space 1 (MOS1) to Urban Residential 1-Holding (UR1-H);
  • Area 2 – Major Open Space 1 (MOS1) to Urban Residential 4-Holding (UR4-H);
  • Area 3 – Major Open Space 1 (MOS1) to Urban Residential 1-Holding (UR1-H);
  • Area 4 – Interim Use 1 (IU1) to Urban Residential 1-Holding (UR1-H);
  • Area 5 – Interim Use 1 (IU1) to Major Open Space 1 (MOS1).

The proposed OPA and Zoning changes are to allow for the development of the 4.5 ha (11.1 acre) approximate area of lands for a total of 74 residential lots, proposed as follows:

  • 8 single detached residential lots to be developed in a Plan of Subdivision on a public right-of-way;
  • 17 townhouse dwelling units to be developed in a Plan of Condominium on a private road; and
  • 49 vacant land residential dwelling lots to be developed in a Plan of Condominium on a private road.

3. The remaining southern 8.06 ha portion of the land south of Cow Creek - not subject of the OPA and Zoning, would be re-developed with a 9-hole – par-3 golf course, with a clubhouse and associated parking to be relocated to the south-eastern corner. Access to the clubhouse would be from Lakeshore Road.

The proposed development, if approved, would occur in accordance with approved Subdivision and Condominium Plans and a Site Plan Development Control Agreement.
