Consultation has concluded

An Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment application has been submitted to change the land use designation on a portion of the property located at 3343 Townline Road from Urban 4 - Detached to Urban 2 - Ground Oriented to permit the construction of a 68 unit townhouse development, and 10 lot residential subdivision.

What is Urban 4 - Detached?

The Urban 4 - Detached land use designation in the OCP supports single detached dwellings and duplexes up to 25 units per hectare. Large sites (1 hectare or greater) may incorporate ground oriented multifamily (townhouses, rowhouses).

What is Urban 2 - Ground Oriented?

The Urban 2 - Ground Oriented land use designation in the OCP supports 3 storey ground oriented multifamily housing (i.e. townhouses, rowhouses).

Why is the amendment proposed?

As shown in the application drawings attached on the right of this page, in 2017 the subject property was rezoned to permit a 14 lot residential subdivision, and 46 unit townhouse development (60 units total). The adoption of the existing zoning was part of a larger application for the surrounding lands, which was possible in the Urban 4 - Detached land use designation, as the lands were larger than 1 hectare (and could therefore incorporate townhouses so long as the overall densities remained below 25 units per hectare).

However, the applicant has now applied to increase the townhouse zoned area to achieve a larger townhouse development than originally proposed (68 units), with a 10 lot residential subdivision (78 units total). An OCP amendment from Urban 4 - Detached to Urban 2 - Ground Oriented is now required to facilitate the proposed townhouse zoning increase, as the surrounding lands have been developed, and the subject property no longer meets the above criteria to expand the townhouse zoning under the existing land use designation.

We invite you to review the proposed OCP Amendment and provide your feedback below, which will be collected and used to identify key community concerns, and where appropriate, inform revisions to the proposal before it proceeds to Council for consideration.
