Revised Application (former Case 20750) by Sunrose Land Use Consulting, on behalf of Hatchet Lake Plaza Ltd., to enter into a development agreement for a Service Station with associate convenience store and drive-through restaurant at 1656 Prospect Road, Hatchet Lake.
The property at 1656 Prospect Road, Hatchet Lake is 4 hectares (10 acres) in area. The development of the service station and associated convenience store and drive-through restaurant is not permitted as-of-right within the I-1 (Light Industry) Zone and therefore requires the discretionary approval of Community Council.
The site plan (see below under Documents Submitted for Evaluation) shows the revised proposal for the site.
The site plan shows a service station with 8 pump gas bar canopy and a 4,428 square foot building with associated convenience store and drive-through restaurant.
The subject property falls within the Planning District 4 (Prospect) Plan Area. The Municipal Planning Strategy for Planning District 4 (Prospect) enables Halifax and West Community Council to consider a development agreement on subject property under Policies RB-10 and IM-11.
The application is being considered under the development agreement process.
Public consultation will be conducted soon. The purpose of the consultation is to receive feedback regarding the proposal. Upon completion of the public consultation, staff will conduct an internal review of the application and submit a staff report to the Halifax and West Community Council to consider the proposed development agreement for the Service Station and to schedule a public hearing.
Documents Submitted for Evaluation
