NOTICE OF A HEARING


Dear Sir or Madam:

This is to advise that on Friday, October 20, 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:         HARRISON, Mark                                                        APPLICATION:  A12-17

PROPERTY:   Part of Island B704 (McLaren Island), being Location GC104, in front of the geographic Township of Cowper

CIVIC ADDRESS:  124 B704 ISLAND

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE APPLICATION:

The applicant is seeking relief from Section 6.1.3 f) Minimum Side Yard Setback, of the Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. A2000-07, as amended, which stipulates that the Minimum Side Yard Setback, is 6 metres (20 feet).

The purpose of the proposed application is to permit a variance of 4.78 metres (15.7 feet) from the Minimum Side Yard Setback. The effect of the proposed variance would be to allow a 49 square metre (527 square feet) sleeping cabin to be constructed having a setback of 1.22 metres (4 feet) from the side lot line.

The owners have stated that the variance is being sought because they are not able to purchase the Crown Reserve fronting their property, which they have been attempting to do since 2006. Because they do not have ownership of the Crown Reserve, they are limited as to where they can place the sleeping cabin due to the terrain and shape of the property. A survey was performed to determine the best area to place to sleeping cabin. Neighbouring lands, to the east of the property, is Crown land.

This letter is for your information only. Persons receiving this notice are under no obligation to attend the Hearing, unless they so desire. Signed written submissions will be accepted by the Secretary‑Treasurer of the Committee of Adjustment prior to or during the Hearing. Such written submissions will be available for inspection at the Hearing by any interested person. Persons not attending will not be entitled to further notice in this matter, except as otherwise provided in the Planning Act.

Additional information relating to the application is available from Planning Department staff at the above noted address during normal office hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). The Committee of Adjustment agenda, containing a copy of the Planner’s report and other relevant information, will be posted on the Township’s website (www.thearchipelago.on.ca) the week of the Hearing.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Committee of Adjustment in respect of this application, you must submit a written request to the Committee of Adjustment. This will also entitle you to be advised of a possible Ontario Municipal Board Hearing, if required.

Dated this 6th day of October, 2017
