Planning Applications for Monday, February 4th, 2019

Applications

1. 6:30 p.m. - COA 1-19 - 264 Snyders Ave.

Background: - The applicants are proposing to construct a new deck on the back of the existing residential dwelling, the proposed deck will be setback 7.45 metres from the rear lot line, whereas the Zoning By-law requires a deck to be setback 9 metres from the rear lot line.

Requested Variances: - i) To permit a deck to project a maximum of 3.05 metres into a required rear yard, whereas Subsection 4.14.1 (iii) of the Village of Belmont Zoning By-law No. 91-21, as amended permits a deck to project a maximum of 1.5 metres into a required rear yard.

Correspondence was received from the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections with this application. No other correspondence was received and no one had objections with this application.

The Requested Variance was granted.

2. 6:40 p.m. - COA 2-19 - 661 George Street

Background: - The applicants are proposing to construct a two-storey single detached residential dwelling on the subject lands. The applicants are requesting a minor variance to reduce the westerly and easterly side yard setbacks in order to locate the proposed dwelling close to the front lot line and in line with the existing development on George Street.

Requested Variances: - (i) To permit a minimum westerly interior side yard depth of 4 feet and a minimum easterly side yard depth of 5 feet whereas Subsection 9.2.1.7.2(a) of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-law No. 1507 requires a minimum side yard depth of 4 feet plus 2 feet for each storey or part thereof above one storey on one side, and 10 feet on the other side.

Correspondence was received from the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections with this application but that the applicants would need a regulation permit prior to construction. Correspondence was also received from a neighbour who offered support for this proposal if the new house was built in-line with the adjacent houses on the north side of George Street and that the stand of trees on the east side of the property remain as a privacy buffer and green space between the two properties.

A issue developed understanding the plans provided by the applicant because one plan showed the new home set back on the lot where no variance would be required and the other showed the home placed in the preferred location in-line with the other homes on the street. After a round table discussion, the details of the location of the new home were confirmed to the satisfaction of everyone.

The Requested Variance was granted.

Background: - The applicants recently constructed an 10 feet storage shed within the easterly side yard of the subject lands that does not conform to the Zoning By-law. The proposed variances are requested to bring the existing storage shed into conformity with the Zoning By-law.

Requested Variances: - (i) To permit a maximum lot coverage of 15% for accessory buildings, whereas Subsection 9.2.1.6(b) of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-Law No. 1507 permits a maximum lot coverage of 8% for accessory buildings.
(ii) To permit an accessory building 21.9 feet from the front lot line, whereas Subsection 9.2.1.7.1(b) of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-Law No. 1507 requires a minimum front yard depth of 25 feet.
