NOTICE OF A HEARING


Dear Sir or Madam:

This is to advise that on Friday, June 23, 2017 at 11:00 a.m., a public hearing will be held in the Township of The Archipelago’s Council Chamber, 9 James Street, Parry Sound, Ontario pursuant to Section 45(6) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13 as amended. At that time the following application for a minor variance shall be heard by the Committee of Adjustment for the Township of The Archipelago.

OWNER:                 HOGARTH, John and Susan

                     APPLICATION:       A08-17             

PROPERTY:           Island B367, being Parcel 1657 PSSS, in front of the geographic Township of Cowper

CIVIC ADDRESS:  1 B367 Island, Archipelago

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The owners are seeking relief from Section 6.13 c) ii) Maximum Lot Coverage, of the Township's Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, as amended, which stipulates that the Maximum Lot Coverage on a 0.37 hectare (0.916 acre) island is 251.2 square metres (2704 square feet).

The purpose of the proposed application is to allow a maximum lot coverage of 257.97 square metres (2776.9 square feet), being 6.8 square metres (73 square feet) over the maximum allowable lot coverage.

The effect of the proposed variance would be to permit the 23.5 square metre (253 square feet) dryland boat storage building to remain as it is on the property, along with the 193.23 square metre (2080 square feet) main dwelling and 41.24 square metre (444 square feet) sleeping cabin.

The owners have stated that they wish to preserve the dryland boat storage building because they utilize the building as it is for storage. The owners were issued a building permit for a main dwelling, based on the fact that a portion of the dryland boat storage building had to be removed.
