Planning Applications for Monday, October 29th, 2018

Committee of Adjustment

1. 7:00 p.m. - CAO 19-18 - David Russell, 177 Main Street

Background: - The applicant is proposing to convert the existing residential floor area on the main floor to an apartment dwelling unit, substantially as shown on the site plan accompanying the subject application.

Requested Variance: - (i) To permit an apartment dwelling unit on the main or first storey, whereas 10.2.1.1(e) of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-law No. 1507 only permits dwelling units above the main or first storey.

Correspondence was received from the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections with this application.

The Requested Variance was granted.

2. 7:10 p.m. - COA 18-18 - John and Jim Crane, 48397 Dexter Line

CEP 70-18 Application for a Minor Variance No. 18_18 - John and Jim Crane, 48397 Dexter Line

Background: - The subject lands were created through the realignment of Dexter Line. The applicants are requesting a minor variance to permit the subject lands to be used for agricultural purposes.

Requested Variance: - (i) To permit the subject lands to be used for agricultural purposes, which have a lot area of 4.75 hectares (11.73 acres), whereas Subsection 2.52 of the Township of Yarmouth Zoning By-law No. 1998 requires that a farm for the purposes of agriculture shall have a minimum lot area of 10.11 hectares (25 acres).

Correspondence was received from the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating that they had no objections with this application.

The Requested Variance was granted.

3. 7:20 p.m. - COA 17-18 - Jeff and Kelsey Bradley, 318 Selbourne Drive

Background: - The applicant is proposing to construct a 2 metre high fence on the east side of the existing house for the purpose of providing some privacy for an existing outdoor amenity area.

Requested Variance: - To permit a 2 metre high fence in the front yard, whereas Subsection 7.8.2 of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-law No. 1507 provides that no fence shall be erected or used in a front yard if the height of any part of the fence exceeds 1 metre.

Ray Filewood of 316 Selbourne had concerns with the proposed fence stating that a two metre high fence on a corner lot would cause a blind spot for motorists. A fence of this height will be detrimental to the aesthetic appearance of the area and he believes that the owners should supply a survey outlining the fence to be erected to ensure that no encroachment take place.

The owners stated that they had a survey and that the fence would be built to a two metre height on their property according to the survey. Councillor Winkworth asked if the owners had advised any neighbours that they would be building a fence. The owners stated that they had not and that they thought that getting approval from the Municipality was the proper course of action to do things right.

Mayor Marr had concerns about visibility at the corner while exiting a driveway. Lloyd Perrin commented that there were no issues with the fence location if built according to the survey as it provides a reasonable approach for exiting a driveway. The only concern for the variance is the height of the fence.

The Requested Variance was granted.
