Zoning By-law Amendment and Red-line Revision to Draft Approved Plan of SubdivisionJune 14, 2019Under Review


Application for a Zoning By-law Amendment and Red-line Revision to an existing Draft Approved Plan of Subdivision to adjust lot frontages and lot/block layouts. Approvals for Zoning By-law Amendment and Draft Plan of Subdivision were previously obtained for the subject lands in December 2017 (City Files: D14-1628 & D12-431).

The purpose of the new applications are as follows:

Red-line Revision to Draft Approved Plan of Subdivision

The purpose of the Red-line Revision to a Draft Approved Plan of Subdivision (File: D12-431) is to enlarge a mixed-use block on the west side of the subject lands and make minor adjustments to residential lots and streets. The overall residential unit count would increase from 516 units to 518 units, with an opportunity to develop up to a maximum of 847 units, depending on the future built-form on the mixed-use blocks. Revisions to the plan are, for the most part, limited to lotting adjustments and an increase in the area of one (1) mixed-use block on the subject lands.

Zoning By-law Amendment

The purpose of the Zoning By-law Amendment application is to re-zone a small portion of the subject lands south of the Mixed-Use block (formerly Block 294, now Block 257) located on the west side of Madeline Drive. The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment proposes to re-zone this portion of land (1.23 hectares) from Neighbourhood Residential (R5) to Neighbourhood Mixed-Use (NMU) to recognize the Red-line Revision to enlarge the western Mixed-Use block.
