Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment

1. 7:00 p.m. - 509 West Edith Cavell Blvd.

The subject lands, which are located on the north side of West Edith Cavell Boulevard, east of Bartholomew Street, have approximately 44.5 metres of frontage on West Edith Cavell Boulevard and are approximately 16,891 square metres in lot area. Municipally known as 509 West Edith Cavell Boulevard, they may be legally described as being Part of Lot 8, Part Lake Beach, Plan 160, geographic Village of Port Stanley, now Municipality of Central Elgin.

The applicant is proposing to rezone the subject lands to permit residential use and support the creation of three lots, two of which would be use for future residential development. The applicant has applied concurrently to the Elgin County Land Division Committee (LDC Application E19/ 17) for the required consent to create the three lots.

Opposition to this application was given by two members of the public, citing OMB decisions that prevented previous rezoning attempts on this property. After all submissions were given at the public meeting, due to the complicated nature of this application, Mr. Leitch advised Council to seek legal advice on this application before any decision can be made.

The applicant is proposing to rezone the subject lands to permit residential use and support the redevelopment of the two lots. The proposed house design for each lot incorporates flat roofs with rooftop patios to take advantage of the lake views. The applicant has noted that the rooftop access will require a covering that will need to be taken into account as a part of the amendment.
