PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-04)

The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to permit the construction of a single detached residential dwelling closer to lands zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) than the general provisions of the Zoning By-law currently permit and to permit a home industry in an accessory building with a maximum gross floor area of 111 square metres (1194.8 square feet).  The subject lot is an existing 3399 square metre (0.84 acre) lot of record where it would not be possible to construct a dwelling and meet the minimum setback from EMR.

The effect of the amendment is to establish a Rural-Exception Seventy-Four (RU-E74) zone with special provisions which permit a single detached dwelling to be constructed with a minimum setback of 18 metres from an Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) zone and to permit a home industry with a maximum gross floor area of 111 square metres in a detached accessory building.  The amendment would also rezone the subject lands from Rural (RU) to Rural-Exception Seventy-Four (RU-E74).

The lands affected by the Amendment are located on Round Lake Road (County Road 58), being Part 1, Plan 49R-10057, within Part Lot 13, Concession 11, geographic Township of Alice, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
