On November 18, 2013 Halifax and West Community Council passed a motion requesting an amendment to the Halifax Mainland Land Use By-law to amend Section 28 [B] and Section 28[AD] to clarify the side yard setback for semi-detached dwellings.
The proposal is seeking to clarify the requirements for the side yard setback for semi-detached dwellings within the R-2P [General Residential] zone of the Halifax Mainland Land Use By-law.
Currently the R-2P zone outlines a 5 foot side yard setback in section 28 AB  for semi-detached dwellings, and then requires an 8 foot side yard setback within Section 28 AD. Staff will be proposing amendments to the zone to provide clarity surrounding the side yard setback.
This application is being considered under the Land Use By-law amendment process.
The public hearing was held by Halifax and West Community Council on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at Halifax City Hall [Council Chambers], 3rd Floor, 1841 Argyle Street, Halifax. Staff Report
