Armco Capital Inc. is applying to enter into a development agreement to allow a residential development on lands between Lively Road and Wilson Lake Drive in Middle Sackville.
The applicant wishes to enter into a new development agreement to allow subdivision of the lands for residential development to allow a total of 164 residential units. The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:
- 108 single unit dwelling lots;
- 56 semi-detached dwelling units (28 lots);
- Access from Wilson Lake Drive and Lively Road;
- Maintenance of a tree buffer between existing lots along Lively Road and Wilson Lake Drive and the proposed lots; and
- 1,789 square metres of parkland.
The Development Plans (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail, and include information related to the overall concept, traffic and servicing.
A previous application was submitted in 2014 for a development agreement on these lands for a 270-unit residential development comprising of single unit dwellings, semi-detached dwellings, townhouses and multiple unit buildings (Municipal Case #19166). At the public meeting, on October 27, 2014, residents expressed concern with the higher density uses proposed (townhouses and apartment buildings), traffic and servicing. The community felt that the proposal was not compatible with the established residential community. This application was subsequently cancelled and the applicant explored alternate development options for the property, giving consideration to concerns raised by staff and the community.
The application will be considered under the Development Agreement process.
This application is currently under review by staff.
