On Plan 42R-17471, Location CL14028, Parcel 7016 PSNS,

The variance is being sought because the owners wish to replace their existing main dwelling and the terrain is such that the building exceeds the maximum height requirement.

The purpose of the proposed application is to allow a variance of 1.22 metres (4.0 feet) from the maximum 6-metre height that is permitted in Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, as amended.

The effect of the variance would be the construction of a main dwelling, having a ground floor area of approximately 78.4 square metres (844 square feet) and a maximum height of 7.22 metres (23.5 feet).


Cale Henderson; Planner, explained the nature of the application. Mr. Paul Lubbelinkhof; agent, attended in support of the application.

The purpose of the proposed application is to allow for the enlargement of the existing 22.9 square metre (246 square feet) sleeping cabin, for a renovated bathroom and entrance way.

The effect of the proposed variance would be a 5.95 square metre (64 square feet) addition onto the existing sleeping cabin, making it 28.8 square metres (310 square feet) in size.
