5.    Hearing of Minor Variance Applications

i)     LOWASHAWA PROPERTIES LLC – APPLICATION NO. A12-15

Part of Island 94A, being Part 4 on Plan 42R-16009
designated as Parcel 19665 PSNS, in front of
the geographic Township of Harrison
CIVIC ADDRESS:  5 A94 Island, Archipelago

 

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The applicant is seeking relief from Section 5.8 i) d) Docks – of the Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, which stipulates that lots with a frontage in excess of 200 metres on Georgian Bay are permitted 3 docking sites.

The purpose of the proposed variance is to permit the construction of a 4th dock on this lot.  The effect of the proposed variance would be the installation of a 4th dock, being 15 square metres (160 square feet) in size with a 3.66 metre (12 feet) ramp to service an existing sleeping cabin.

The owner has stated that it would be impractical and expensive to reduce the current configuration from three sites to two.

 

Cale Henderson; Secretary Treasurer, explained the nature of the application, and informed the Committee of additional correspondence that was received with respect to the application.  All of the letters stated there was no objection to the application.  Frank Penfold, agent, attended in support of the application.
