Draft Plan Approval Official Plan and Rezoning
Planning Advisory Committee Meeting - September 16th , 2013
Mary C. Joyce-Smith, MCIP, RPP
a) A change in the Staging of the lands from Stage Three and un- staged Lands to Stage One Lands
b) A change to Schedule 3 and 3B to recognize these lands as Urban Residential.
c) A request to amend the base zoning for a Residential 20 to a Residential 15 with site specific exceptions.
In addition there are exceptions to the provisions in the zone:
The Planning Division is in receipt of a letter from the adjacent land owners to the south who are concerned about the viability of their lands .
Upon further analysis of the original severance B- 26-86 it was determined that the land had been severed into 5 pieces. The severance did not provide direct reference to a draft plan however the application did supply an old draft plan dated 1966. Thus justifying why Part 1 on Plan 52R-2763 was 50 feet as opposed to 66feet.
Therefore as detailed in the the report Planning has provided some previous precedent cases in the city namely Wellington Street Municipal Rights of Way and McKenzie Municipal Rights of Way . Both of these situations are intended to reserve municipal access to back lot lands on Veteran Land (VLA) lots areas and provided for land assembly in the future to develop into plans of subdivision for example.
Planning understands that in some cases there may not be any desire to develop, however, the Official Plan directs the municipality to consider the following:
3.2.3. Urban Development is to be encouraged in an orderly compact and logically staged manner and shall take plan through infilling, consolidation and gradual expansion of existing urban development areas.
Infilling and consolidation or existing urban development areas shall be strongly encouraged through:
e) “ back lots” plans of subdivision, re-subdivision and severance of existing large lot areas which are or can be economically serviced by municipal water and sewer facilities eg., V.L.A lot in the north Pitt Street area

Concurrent with this Draft Plan Approval application, the Developer is also involved in the First Application process under Land Titles (formerly known as the Certification of Title) which is distinct and separate from the Draft Plan process. This is done in conjunction with the Subdivider’s Agreement and at that point the Developer may move to full Registration of the plan.
