4. CEP 27-19 - COA 11/17 - Bill Bacon, 46105 New Sarum Line (Status Update)

Background - The applicant made application in 2017 for a minor variance requesting the Committee of Adjustment to recognize an existing swimming pool deck and fence in order to bring the structures into compliance with the Zoning By-Law. No new development was being proposed through the application.

A public meeting was held on April 18, 2017. At that meeting a neighbour attended who raised concerns regarding the location of the fence relative to the property line. No decision was made on the application in order to allow the applicant and the neighbour time to resolve the property line matter.

The applicant recently approached staff to advise that the property line issue was resolved and the fence has been relocated and lowered to 6 feet, so no variance is required for the fence. The pool deck has been confirmed to be 11 inches (0.28 metres) from the property line. The applicant has revised his application such that the only variance he now needs is for the deck.

Requested Variance - (i) To recognize the location of a swimming pool deck 0.28m (11 inches) from the westerly side lot line, whereas Subsection 7.2.3.2 of the Township of Yarmouth Zoning By-law No. 1998, requires a swimming pool deck to be setback 0.5m to a lot line.

Staff recommended that a public meeting be reconvened at a later date to advise the public of a revised application that had substantial changes than the previous application.
