CEP 71-16 Application for a Minor Variance No. 20_16 - Kory and Kaylie Kuipers, Concession 9, South Part of Lot 18, 45024 Talbot Line

The applicants are proposing to reconstruct a legal non-complying garage that was recently destroyed by a house fire. The Zoning By-law permits a legal non-complying building or structure to be reconstructed that has been partially or completely destroyed by a fire, subject to the reconstruction not contravening the provisions of the Zoning By-law, because of a change in height, size or bulk. According to the applicants the building foot print and setbacks for the new garage will be similar to the original legal non-complying garage; however it is proposed that the new garage will include a second storey, containing two bedrooms and a family room, which is new construction and must conform to the Zoning By-Law.

The Committee of Adjustment voted unanimously to support this Minor Variance Application.

Zoning By-law Amendment

Notice of Public Meeting - Zoning By-Law Amendment - Low - 195 Prospect Street

The subject lands, which are located on the east side of Prospect Street near its southerly end, have approximately 15.2 metres of frontage on Edward Street and a lot area of 826.8m2(0.20 acres). Municipality known as 195 Prospect Street, they may be legally described as being Part of Lot 1, Concession 1, geographic Township of Yarmouth, now Municipality of Central Elgin.

The subject lands contain one existing single detached dwelling, which according to the applicants was built in approximately 1908. It is proposed by the applicants that the existing dwelling be demolished and a new single detached dwelling be built.

The subject lands are located within the Residential Zone 1 (R1) in accordance with the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-law 1507. The R1 zone permits residential use, institutional uses lawfully existing on the day of passing of the by-law, home occupations and accessory uses. A zoning by-law amendment is required in order to establish site specific building envelope for the proposed new dwelling, in accordance with the recommendations of the applicant's geotechnical engineer.

Issues regarding the location of the building, being on a slope, might cause issues during new construction with adjacent properties was brought up by Mr. McCoomb. Finding solutions to this issue would be in place by the investigations of a geotechnical engineer before any activity would commence, and that a geotechnical engineer would be on site to inspect all excavations to insure that all work being done, followed the recommended investigations done by the Geo-technical Engineer. Any issues that would have an impact on adjacent properties would have a solution that staff would be satisfied with before this Zoning By-Law Amendment would be brought back to council.

The Public Meeting concluded with a Zoning By-Law Amendment to be considered at a future Meeting of Council.
