Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS Report ACS2017-PIE-PS-0058 recommends an Official Plan amendment to allow habitable space on the ground level of a coach house in the urban area where a two-storey coach house is permitted by way of a Committee of Adjustment minor variance application; and WHEREAS the proposed Official Plan amendment set out in Document 1 of the report inadvertently removes the requirement for there to be a garage within a two-storey building containing a coach house in the urban area; and WHEREAS, based on discussions with the community, it is considered prudent to provide additional clarity in the implementation of this Official Plan policy by way of an additional Zoning By-law amendment to further clarify what constitutes a garage; and WHEREAS the report also recommends a Zoning By-law amendment to address implementation challenges with regards to the 3.2-metre maximum wall height requirement; and WHEREAS, based on discussions with the community, further refinements to the language of this requirement are necessary to address concerns regarding the potential height massing of a one-storey coach house; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the following changes be made to Report ACS2017-PIE-PS-0058: 1. Part B of Document 1 – Official Plan Amendment is amended by replacing item (b) in section (2) with the following: b) Section 3.1 (1) (i) is amended by replacing its second sentence with the following text: “An application to allow a height of up to two storeys through a minor variance may be considered in accordance with the considerations noted in h. above, only where the coach house contains a garage for the parking of a motor vehicle within its footprint.” 2. Document 2 – Details of the Recommended Zoning By-law Amendment is amended by the following: a. replacing clause e) with the following: (e) Amend Section 142(7)(b)(ii) by replacing it with the following: “3.6 metres, except for a coach house with a flat roof which has a maximum building height of 3.2 metres” b. adding the following clauses: (i) Amend sub clause 142(7)(a)(iii) by replacing it with the following: “despite (ii), where the building containing a coach house also includes a garage containing a parking space established in accordance with Part 4 of this By-law, the building may have a maximum height of 6.1 metres.”; (j) Amend section 142(14) by adding a new clause, (c), as follows: “when located on a property in Areas A, B or C of Schedule 1, must not be a shed style roof”; and, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that there be no further notice pursuant to Subsection 34 (17) of the Planning Act.
