The subject lands, which are located on the east side of Colborne Street, south of Stanley Street, have approximately 20 metres of frontage on Colborne Street and are approximately 758 square metres in lot area.

The subject lands are located within the Residential Zone 1 (R1) of the Village of Port Stanley Zoning By-law No. 1507, as amended. The R1 zone permits residential use and one single detached dwelling on a lot.

A zoning by-law amendment is required in order to permit the proposed secondary apartment.

The applicant is proposing a two story addition to the building to accommodate a freight elevator, and will have an enclosed outdoor compound for larger items such as boats and trailers.

The Residential Policies of the Plan permit a full range of residential dwelling types and densities. An official plan amendment (exception) is required in order to permit the proposed mini-storage use on the subject lands.

A zoning by-law amendment is required in order to support the repurposing of the existing garage building into mini-storage as proposed by the applicant.

The applicant is proposing to sell one of the three lots (Lot 44) that comprise their current holdings within the subject lands.

A zoning amendment is required to recognize the change in the number of houses remaining and to permit ongoing residential use of the lot to be sold.

Plan of Condominium

1. 7:15 p.m. - 14168 Belmont Road

The proposed Draft Plan of Condominium is located east of Belmont Road, south of Robin Ridge Drive and north of Washburn Street. The proposed development, owner Robin Ridge Estates Limited, encompasses 3.00 hectares of land and provides for the development of 40 units for single-detached dwellings. Twenty-eight visitor parking spaces are proposed. The County of Elgin is the Approval Authority for this application, so all concerns and comments from this Public Meeting will be directed to the County.

Correspondence was received concerning ongoing water flow issues onto their property and that Council should be reminded that it would be negligent or careless in performance of duty to approve a new development before the drainage issues affecting property owners at Robin Ridge are completed to the satisfaction of the homeowners.

Another area resident had concerns about the driveway beside her residence being used as a road for heavy equipment, and also had concerns about ongoing drainage issues.

Mr. Leitch commented that if there is outstanding issues like drainage in the existing development, the Municipality will not clear the Plan of Condominium, therefore no units can be sold, so we do have that level of control. I understand it after speaking to Mr. Perrin, that a revised grading plan is necessary, in addition to the developer and the purchasers being involved in approving that, and Council will also have to approve that because it is an alteration to the existing development.

The public meeting concluded for this Plan of Condominium. A decision on this Plan of Condominium will be considered at a future meeting of County Council.
