571 Lacolle Way
Canadian Auto Parts Distributors
Brian Morley, Morley Hoppner Limited
Description of site and surroundings
The site is addressed 571 Lacolle Way, south and east of Taylor Creek Drive, and north of St. Joseph Boulevard. The property is located within the Taylor Creek Business Park, in Orléans. It has aproximately 95 metres of frontage along Lacolle Way and measures 0.526 hectares in area. The lands are currently occupied with a commercial building known as Canadian Auto Parts Supplier (C.A.P.S), with associated vehicular parking. The balance of the lands are vacant and do not contain any significant vegetation. Refer to Document 1 – Location Map.
Summary of requested Zoning By-law amendment proposal
The proposal would see the current zone IL4 H(21) – Light Industrial, Subzone 4, Maximum Building Height 21 metres changed to IL4 [xxxx] H(21) – Light Industrial, Exception xxxx H(21).
Brief history of proposal
These lands are also subject to a Site Plan Control application (D07-12-16-0170) that consists of a multi-tenant commercial addition to the existing warehouse and sales building. The addition will permit the construction of three new commercial units.
The current Light Industrial Subzone 4 does not allow automobile service station as a use, and limits the permitted uses at 300 square metres. The Zoning By-law amendment seeks to rezone the property to allow an automobile service station, with each use not exceeding 300 square metres.
Notice of this application was circulated to surrounding landowners and two standard City signs were installed on site giving notice of this Zoning By-law amendment in accordance with the Council approved policy for Public Notification and Consultation and the Planning Act.
No public comments were received.
Official Plan designation
The Official Plan designates this site Employment Area on Schedule B, which permits a variety of industrial and employment-generating uses, such as warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, communications, storage, construction, office; and a variety of ancillary uses, such as recreational, health and fitness uses, child care, and service commercial uses (e.g. convenience store, doctor and dentist office, service station or gas bar). The proposed use is permitted within this designation.
Urban Design Review Panel
The subject sites are not located within a Design Priority Area; therefore the Panel did not review this application.
The Zoning By-law amendment reflects the intent of the Official Plan. The rezoning is required in order to permit automobile related uses such as ‘automobile service station.
