This bylaw proposes changes to the Direct Control (Semi-Detached Residential) District (DC(R-2)) in Kinniburgh South Phase 3 and 4. The proposed amendment is the result of a required road connection, Sandpiper Boulevard, to extend to future development areas east of Kinniburgh South Phase 3 and 4. The required road connection resulted in lost lots in Kinniburgh South. Therefore, the proposed amendments are to replace the lost lots, plus an effort to better realize minimum density requirements.
The proposed amendments to the DC(R-2) include:
- Site standard amendments
- Reduced minimum lot areas (from 305 m2 to 301 m2)
- Reduced minimum lot width (from 10.0 m to 9.14 m)
- Reduced minimum side yard setback (principal building) (from 1.5 m to 1.2 m)
- Increased maximum lot coverage (from 40% to 50%)
2. That decisions on all Development Permit applications in the Direct Control Semi-Detached Residential District DC(R-2) may be made by the Development Officer.
