A public hearing will be held by Regional Council on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Halifax City Hall (Council Chamber), 3rd Floor, 1841 Argyle Street, Halifax, NS. A link to the staff report can be found under the Status section below.
Application by Civtech Engineering, on behalf of James, Leo and Ann Hallal and Mike Faddoul, to amend the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-law for Planning District 5 (Chebucto Peninsula) to allow commercial and residential development at the former satellite station site at 90 Club Road in Harrietsfield.
The applicant is proposing to convert the existing 4,000 square foot building at 90 Club Road, that was formerly used as a satellite receiving station, for commercial purposes. The applicant is also proposing to rezone the remainder of the property to allow for the development of four (4) residential lots. No policy currently exists to enable the conversion of the existing building. However, there is policy (Policy RES-2 of the MPS) to consider a rezoning of the remaining lands to the R-2 (Two Unit Dwelling) Zone.
A portion of PID 40072530, abutting 90 Club Road, is also zoned P-5 (Special Facility). The proposal includes rezoning this portion of the property to the R-2 (Two Unit Dwelling) Zone as the remainder of the property is already zoned R-2.
The application is being considered under the Municipal Planning Strategy Amendment and the Land Use By-law Amendment planning process.
Regional Council began the MPS amendment process at its meeting August 15, 2017 following consideration of an initiation report submitted by staff.
A Public Information Meeting was held on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Harrietsfield Elementary School. The proposal has now be reviewed in detail by staff.
A public hearing will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 6:00 p.m. at Halifax City Hall (Council Chamber), 3rd Floor, 1841 Argyle Street, Halifax, NS. All oral and written submissions will be considered at that time. At this meeting, the staff report will be considered by Regional Council for a decision.
