5.    Hearing of Minor Variance Applications

i)    BARR, Ronald and Nancy – APPLICATION NO. A11-15

Part of Lot 28, Concession 11

being Part 1 on Plan 42R-15682

in the geographic Township of Harrison

CIVIC ADDRESS:  44 Raby’s Road

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The applicants are seeking relief from ‘Section 5.22c) Non Complying Buildings & Structures i) – Horizontal Extension Permitted – Front and Side Yards i) and ii), of the Township's Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, as amended.  Section 5.22 c)i) and ii) state that the enlargement of a legal non-complying main dwelling, that does not comply with the side yard requirements, may be permitted provided the expansion or extension does not exceed 50% of the total ground floor area of the existing dwelling and that the wall which encroaches into the side yard cannot be extended by more the 50% of the length of the existing wall.

The purpose of the proposed application is to permit the enlargement of an existing 42.46 square metre (457.1 square feet) main dwelling that encroaches into the minimum required side yard setback.  The length of the existing wall that encroaches into the side yard setback is 6.1 metres (20 feet).

Firstly, the effect would be the construction of an addition being 83.23 square metres (896 square feet) in area, which would require a variance of 40.77 square metres (439 square feet).  Secondly, the effect would be the extension of the length of the encroaching wall by 9.1 metres (30 feet), which would require a variance of 6.1 metres (20 feet).  The relief is being sought because the location of the existing main dwelling is 2.7 metres (9 feet) from the side lot line.  The cottage is proposed to have a total ground floor area of 125.7 square metres (1353 square feet).


Cale Henderson; Secretary Treasurer, explained the nature of the application, and read aloud one letter that was received from Mr. Schonenberger.  Ronald and Nancy Barr attended in support of the application.  Anne Stewart, Mike Weston and Paige Phillips were also in attendance.
