The purpose of this application is to consider a request to amend the detached accessory dwelling unit setback requirements of Zoning By-law 2018-65. The effect of the application is to recognize existing deficient building setbacks in order to permit the conversion of an existing detached accessory structure into an accessory apartment dwelling unit.
The amendment proposes to establish a site-specific exception to the property to recognize the current setbacks of the existing detached structure. The amendment would recognize an existing easterly interior side yard setback of 0.4m, whereas a minimum of 2.0m is required, and an existing front yard setback of 1.7m, whereas a minimum of 7.5m is required.
The lands are also subject to a concurrent Site Plan Application for the detached accessory dwelling unit and are legally described as Lot 8, Plan 389.
What is being proposed?
The By-law to Regulate and License Businesses in the Town of The Blue Mountains and the By-law to Establish a Comprehensive System of Administrative Monetary Penalties for the Town of The Blue Mountains are By-laws to replace the Town’s current regime of Licensing and Administrative Monetary Penalties. The By-law to Regulate and License Businesses in the Town of The Blue Mountains will permit the Town to License and regulate a range of businesses; however, Short-Term Accommodation Licenses will be subject of the initial By-law. The Administrative Monetary Penalty By-law will enable the Town to issue Administrative Monetary Penalties for infractions under other designated Town By-laws, initially, the Business Licensing By-law. This By-law represents an overhaul of the Town’s existing system and aims to make the Town’s infraction and penalty system for Business Licenses more robust, faster and simpler then pursuing charges under the Provincial Offences Act.
