PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-11)
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone the subject lands to satisfy a condition of consent for a concurrent Application for Consent File No. B48/18 filed with the County of Renfrew Land Division Committee, which would allow the existing surplus residential dwellings and farm buildings to be severed from the larger farm lot property which will be retained by the farmer/owner who resides on another farm property in the area.  The amendment for the proposed retained lot portion of the subject lands is to prohibit residential uses on the retained lot which will continue to be used for agricultural purposes by the farmer/owner. The amendment for the proposed severed lot portion of the subject lands is required to recognize the two existing residential dwellings, to require a minimum 20 metre setback from the rear lot line for the existing barn structure and to permit farm uses on a 0.78 hectare lot.
 
The effect of the amendment is to rezone the proposed retained lot portion of the subject lands from Agriculture (A) to Agriculture-Exemption Twenty-Four (A-E24) and to rezone the proposed severed lot portion of the subject lands from Agriculture (A) to Agriculture-Exemption Twenty-Five (A-E25).
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are known municipally as 3130 Stafford Third Line, being Part Lot 17, Concession 2, in the geographic Township of Stafford, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
