1. 6:50 p.m. - ZBA - Campbell, 476 West Edith Cavell Blvd.
Background: The subject lands are located on the south side of West Edith Cavell
Boulevard, west of its easterly terminus, in the Community of Port Stanley. They
may be legally described as Part of Lot 6, Plan 117, Geographic Village of Port
Stanley, now Municipality of Central Elgin.
The applicant is proposing to construct a new detached garage with a second storey
bunky at the same location as an existing shed on the subject lands. The proposed
garage measures 4.877 metres (16 feet) by 8.534 metres (28 feet) with a 1.524 metre
(5 foot) overhang on the east side. The second storey of the garage features an
open concept studio loft style apartment with one bathroom and a kitchenette.
The subject lands are currently zoned Open Space Zone 3 (OS3) and Dynamic Beach
Standard (DBS) as set out in the Village of Port Stanley By-Law 1507. The OS3 zone
only permits existing residential uses. The purpose and effect of the proposed zoning
by-law amendment is to permit the proposed garage and bunky, and to place site specific
regulations on the subject lands to control the use.
Correspondence was received from Kettle Creek Conservation Authority indicating they
had no objections, providing that the applicant get a permit from KCCA prior to
any development or alteration on the property. The Port Stanley Uprush study indicates
that the property is located within the modified regulatory flood standards zone
of the 100 year Lake Erie Uprush zone. Construction is permitted subject to the
proposed building being constructed in the least hazardous section of the property
and that the structure incorporate flood proofing measures to the level of the uprush
elevation designed and certified by a professional engineer.
The Public Meeting was then concluded, and the actions of Council on the Proposed
Zoning Amendment will be considered at a future meeting of Council.
