6.       Hearing of Minor Variance Applications

          i)        COX, John – Application No. A14-13

                    Concession 5, Part Lot 24
                    Being Parts 6 and 7 on Plan 42R-8460
                    In the geographic Township of Conger


PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The owners are seeking relief from Sections 5.22 c) vi) Non-Complying Buildings and Structures, Accessory Buildings or Structures, and 7.1.3 c) ii) Inland Lakes Residential (IR) Zone, Maximum Lot Coverage, which stipulate that Legal non-complying accessory buildings or structures may not be enlarged or extended as well as the ‘maximum lot coverage’ for a lot being 0.45 hectares (1.1 acres) in size.

The purpose of the proposed application is to allow for the reconstruction of a boathouse, larger than that which existed prior to the demolition, as well as the development of the property further beyond its maximum lot coverage.    

The effect of the proposed variance would result in the construction of a 95 square metre (1023 square feet) non-complying boathouse, the removal of 45 square metres (481 square feet) of floor area and a maximum lot coverage of 415 square metres (4467 square feet).

This proposal is being sought as a means of resolving an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Cale Henderson; Planner, explained the nature of the application. The agent; Mr. John Jackson and the owner; Mr. John Cox, attended in support of the application.
