CONCLUSION

 

The applicant (De Lint + Edwards Architects) proposes to develop a Semi-Detached Dwelling Unit consisting of two units and a total floor area of 377.49 square metres.

 

The subject property is currently zoned R6 - Residential Multiple Housing Zone located within the Harbour Landing Subdivision.

 

The proposal complies with the development standards and regulations contained in the Regina Zoning Bylaw No. 9250 (Zoning Bylaw) and is consistent with the policies in Design Regina: The Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2013-48 (OCP). Accordingly, the Administration recommends approval.

 

BACKGROUND

 

This application is being considered pursuant to the Zoning Bylaw, the OCP and The Planning and Development Act, 2007 (Act).

 

This parcel was initially approved as a contract zone (CR14-54) to allow for a Daycare Centre and Temporary Assisted Living Facility in conjunction with Lot FF (5600 Waterer Road). Because that development did not commence within the required time period, the contract zone was discharged on November 24, 2017 and a new application for a revised development proposal is being considered.

 

Pursuant to subsection 56(3) of the Act, Council may establish conditions for discretionary uses based on: nature of the proposal (e.g. site, size, shape and arrangement of buildings) and aspects of site design (e.g. landscaping, site access, parking and loading), but not including the colour, texture or type of materials and architectural details.

The applicant proposes to develop a Semi-Detached Dwelling Unit on the subject property.

Surrounding land uses are semi-detached dwellings to the west and detached dwellings to the south. To the south-east is a multi-generational care facility known as Harbour Landing Village. There is a vacant parcel to the east which is also zoned R6 – Residential Multiple Housing Zone.

 

The proposal complies with the Harbour Landing Concept Plan, which identifies the subject property for high density residential development. The Harbour Landing Concept Plan is included for reference in Appendix A-3. The proposed development is consistent with the purpose and intent of the R6 – Residential Multiple Housing Zone with respect to the density. The R6 – Residential Multiple Housing Zone is intended to accommodate a variety of development options with a net density in excess of 50 dwelling units per hectare. The density targets will be achieved as further development occurs on the balance of the R6 - Residential Multiple Housing Zone sites.
