5970 Fernbank Rd – Proposed Tartan Homes Development

The City has received a Zoning By-law Amendment and Plan of Subdivision application from Tartan Homes working with Tamarack and Cardel Homes (Application Number D07-16-15-0008).   The proposed development is at 5970 Fernbank Road located on the south side of Fernbank Road with frontage on Shea Road to the east, and is within the Stittsville South Urban Expansion Area (Area 6).  This site is located in Councillor Scott Moffatt’s Ward 21 but given the close proximity to the Stittsville ward I will be actively involved in the application process.

The applications are to permit the development of a 731 unit, mixed-density residential subdivision along with the associated roads and pedestrian pathways, servicing infrastructure, stormwater management pond, parkland and open space. The applicant has proposed a residential unit share of 329 single detached units (45% of total units), 108 semi-detached units (15% of total units), 122 townhouse units (17% of total units) and 172 low rise stacked and apartment units (24% of total units). The low rise stacked and apartment units will be located along Shea Road, east of the hydro corridor, and the single detached units will abut the existing residential community to the west.

A public meeting was held on October 1, 2015 and the information presented at this meeting can be found below.
