Part of Lot 25, Concession 10
Part 16 on Plan PSR-889, Parcel 13722 PSSS
Conger
Crane Lake Neighbourhood
CIVIC ADDRESS:  16 South Fork Road

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The applicant is seeking relief from Section 5.1.2 ii)a) – Accessory Structures-Residential, which stipulates that accessory buildings shall not exceed one storey and 5 metres in height.

The purpose of the proposed application is to allow a variance of 1 storey and 1 metre (3.3 feet) from the maximum 5-metre maximum 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 second storey on the existing garage, having a maximum height of approximately 6 metres (19.5 feet).

The variance is being sought because the owner currently utilizes the attic above the garage for storage, and access is by a drop down staircase.  She wishes to be able to access a full second storey area, as it would make it more user friendly for her.

Cale Henderson; Planner, explained the nature of the application.  Rita and John Kunc attended in support of the application.

The owner has stated that he wishes to have the extra living space in the sleeping cabin because he would like to have two bedrooms, a washroom and a games room for his expanding family.
