Application Details

Current Zoning

The site is currently zoned Natural Areas Protection Zone (NA) and Direct Development Control Provision (DC1). This current zoning allows for retention of a tree stand and development of a pedestrian-friendly community commercial area that includes commercial, residential, office, entertainment and institutional uses. 

The existing natural tree stand on the north part of the site is no longer sustainable, leading to the proposed rezoning.

Proposed Rezoning

The proposed rezoning to Public Utility Zone (PU), (DC1) Direct Development Control Provision and Low Rise Apartment Zone (RA7) will allow for the development of a fire station by re-designating a natural area to a public utility lot. It will also expand sites designated for commercial and medium density residential housing, make minor changes to the Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) regulations for the pedestrian-friendly community commercial center and remove the Municipal Reserve designation on the site.

Plan Amendments

This application includes an amendment to the Charlesworth Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP), and the Southeast Area Structure Plan (ASP) to reflect the proposed rezoning. The proposed amendment will remove the existing tree stand and incorporate the development of a fire station and expand the community commercial area.
