At the public meeting on May 28th, 2018 the Committee heard from two neighbours from 145 Ramona Lane and 147 Ramona Lane who expressed concerns about the height and size of the proposed pool enclosure. Staff reported that the variances before the Committee are about the setbacks from the property lines and not the height or coverage. The proposed enclosure meets with the regulations of the By-law regarding height and coverage. The Committee deferred its decision on the matter pending the applicants meeting with the neighbours to see If they could work out an agreeable resolution.

The applicants have indicated that they have met with their neighbours at 145 Ramona (Barker's), and at 147 Ramona and believe they have an agreement. They have agreed to reduce the length of the enclosure by another two feet for a total setback from the rear lot line of 8 feet (2.4 metres) and to reduce the height from 14 feet to 11 feet.

The Requested Variance was granted as ammended.
