REVISED: Application by Walid Jriege for a development agreement for property located at the corner of Sackville Drive and Wilson Lake Drive (PID 40574907), Middle Sackville to allow for a multiple-unit dwelling with a total of 7 dwelling units.
The applicant wishes to enter into a development agreement to allow for one building with a total of 7 residential units, in a townhouse-style arrangement of units. The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:
- The subject site is to retain existing R-6 zoning
- The current proposal is for 7 dwelling units in one building with 2 driveways off Wilson Lake Drive
- No subdivision of the lot will take place.
- Lot is 1.51 acres (6111 square metres)
- The applicant submitted servicing schematics for water and wastewater
- A Nova Scotia Power easement runs over small segments of the subject site
The site plan illustrates and labels the building footprint, driveway(s), parking spaces, landscaped areas, active/ amenity open spaces, buffers and tree retention areas. There are no apparent wetlands or watercourses, and the site will be sloped so that stormwater runoff goes to ditches on the boundaries of the property. There are no proposed accessory building(s), although the agreement could permit accessory building(s) and uses. The front elevation drawing now indicates proposed exterior building materials.
