Committee of Adjustment

1. 12:30 p.m. - COA 15-19, John Luttikhof, 9720 Tower Road

Background - The applicant is proposing to construct a 1-1/2 storey addition (20 ft. x 30 ft.) on the south side of the existing residential dwelling. The minor variances are required to permit the addition to be located in line (11 ft.) with the front of the existing legal non-complying residential dwelling.

Requested Variance(s)
i) To permit an addition 11 ft. from the front lot line, whereas Subsection 8.2.1.7.1 of the Township of Yarmouth Zoning By-Law No. 1998, requires a front yard setback of 65 feet.
ii) To permit eaves and eavestroughs to project up to a maximum of 2.46 ft. into a required yard in an Open Space Zone, whereas Subsection 7.2.2 of the Township of Yarmouth Zoning By-Law No. 1998, only permits eaves and eavestroughs to project up to a maximum of 2.46 ft. into a required yard in a Residential Zone.

Correspondence was received from the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections with this application. There were no objections or questions from Council, or the public.

The Requested Variance was granted.

Zoning By-law Amendments

1. 12:40 p.m. - ZBA - 386 Edith Cavell Blvd.

Background - The subject lands, which are located on the south side of Edith Cavell Boulevard, have approximately 9.6 metres (31.5 feet) of frontage and are approximately 0.09 hectares (0.22 acres) in lot area. Municipally known as 386 Edith Cavell Boulevard, they may be legally described as Part of Lot 25, North of Lake Erie, Registered Plan No. 117, geographic Village of Port Stanley, now Municipality of Central Elgin.

The applicants are proposing to rezone the subject lands to permit the construction of a new residential use. Specifically, the applicant is seeking to demolish the three existing cottages on the property for the purposes of constructing a new cottage. In addition, the proposed zone would allow for minimum side yard setbacks of 1.2 meters (3.94 feet) and would permit a detached garage with a secondary dwelling unit above the garage.

Correspondence was received from the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections on this proposed By-law amendment.
Councillor Fehr asked if having a residential dwelling in both new buildings would the owner be able to sever the lot later making two dwellings. Staff indicated that this would not be allowed under the Planning Act.
The Public Meeting was then concluded, and the actions of Council on the Proposed Zoning Amendment will be considered at a future meeting of Council.
