30 Johnwoods Street, (40) Hartin Street

The Owner wants to subdivide the property into two separate parcels of land to create a new lot for future development.  The existing detached dwelling known municipally as 30 Johnwoods Street is to remain on the other parcel.

The Owner has filed Consent Applications (D08-01-16/B-00176 & D08-01-16/B-00177) which, if approved, will have the effect of creating two separate parcels of land.  One parcel will be for future development and the other will contain the existing dwelling.  The proposed parcel containing the existing detached dwelling will not be in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning By-law.

In order to proceed, the Owner requires the Authority of the Committee for a Minor Variance from the Zoning By-law to permit a reduced rear yard setback of 2.8 metres whereas the By-law requires a minimum rear yard setback of 9 metres.

It should be noted that, for By-law purposes, the frontage on Hartin Street is deemed to be the front lot line for this property.
