NOTICE OF A COMPLETE APPLICATION AND A PUBLIC MEETING
FOR A ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that The Corporation of the Township of Nipissing has received an application to amend Zoning By-law 2012-12. The application was deemed complete on July 23, 2020. The application affects lands located on the subject property locally known as 4383 Highway 654 and legally described as Part Lot 13, Concession 10, Township of Nipissing, District of Parry Sound, PIN 522190310.

The subject property currently contains a detached dwelling and accessory shed. The owner is proposing to construct an accessory building to facilitate a small engine machine shop (home industry). In accordance with Section 4.14.1 of the Zoning By-law, a home industry is not a permitted use within the Hamlet Residential (RH) Zone; and therefore the purpose of the application is to rezone the subject property from the Hamlet Residential (RH) Zone to the Special Zone No. Twenty-Two (SZ 22) to permit a home industry.

Section 3.19 f) of the Zoning By-law states that a lot to be used for a home industry shall have at least 45 metres of lot frontage and a lot area not less than 0.4 hectares. The subject property has a lot frontage of 40 metres and a lot area of 0.18 hectares as indicated on the application forms. An amendment is required to Section 3.19 f) on this basis.

Further to the above, an amendment is required to permit an accessory building to be located 4.5 metres from a road (Beatty Street and the Blake Street road allowance). Section 3.3 c) of the Zoning By-law requires a minimum setback of 8 metres for an accessory building to a road. Lastly, an amendment is required to permit an accessory building with a height of 5 metres. Section 3.3 d) of the Zoning By-law states that the maximum height of an accessory building shall be 4.5 metres in a residential zone.

AND PURSUANT to Section 34 (10) of the Planning Act, the application file is available for review at the Municipal Office, between the hours of 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm on regular weekdays.

FURTHER TAKE NOTICE that the Council for The Corporation of the Township of Nipissing will be holding a Public Meeting under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter 13 as amended, to inform the public of a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.
