Jack Bryant is applying, on behalf of 3232975 Nova Scotia Ltd., to amend the existing 2014 development agreement for PID 40306730, property adjacent to 1300 Prospect Rd, Goodwood, to permit a four-year extension to the deadline for commencement of development and a five year extension to the deadline for the completion of development.
The property owner is making an application to amend the existing development agreement allowing the construction commencement deadline to be extended by four years and the completion of the development deadline to be extended by five years. The existing development agreement requires construction to commence by August 26, 2018, which is four years after the development agreement was registered. This application proposes to extend the construction commencement deadline to August 26, 2022 and the completion of development deadline to August 26, 2023.
The applicant wishes to develop a service station, drive-in restaurant and a 10,000 square foot commercial retail building on two parcels.
The existing Development Agreement (provided below) outlines the development proposal in detail, and includes information related to the proposed buildings, parking location, driveway access and landscaping.
On December 12, 2018 a public hearing was held by Halifax and West Community Council. View the staff report on-line or request a copy by calling HRM Planning and Development at 902-490-4472.
After the public hearing closed, Halifax and West Community Council directed staff to consult with the developers to amend the proposed development agreement for Case 21847 increase the buffer between the proposed commercial development and the adjacent wetlands from 20 meters to 30 meters and return with a supplementary staff report outlining the terms of any amended development agreement. Approved minutes of the public hearing are also available.
The applicant has revised the proposal to increase the buffer from 20 meters to 23.5 meters and revised drawings are linked below under the submitted documents. The requested supplementary report will be linked to the Halifax and West Community Council agenda when it is published on-line. A second public hearing will be held and information regarding the date and time will be provided on this site as well as in mailed notification.
Documents Submitted for Evaluation
The applicant has submitted plans and studies required by municipal staff to properly evaluate the application. The documents are also available for review at the Planning Applications office in Downtown Dartmouth.
