A revised application was submitted by ZAPP Consultants on behalf of Shaw Group Ltd. (former application by Miller Developments Limited) for a development agreement for an Open Space Design Development (Conservation Design) at Cumberland Way, Carriage Road and Charleswood Drive, Windsor Junction.
A revised application for a residential development has been received for a 54 hectare (134 acres) site in Windsor Junction. This revised application proposes an Open Space Design development with a total of 176 residential units (92 single unit dwellings and 84 townhouses) serviced with Municipal water and on-site cluster styled sewage treatment.
This application is being considered through the development agreement process. See A Guide to Open Space Design Development in Halifax Regional Municipality for more information on the rationale behind open space subdivisions.
In 2014, amendments were made to the Open Space Design (now known as Conservation Design Development) policies in the Regional Plan. This application was received prior to the 2014 Regional Plan amendments and will therefore be reviewed under the 2006 Regional Plan policies for Open Space Design.
On June 22, 2020 the North West Community Council (NWCC) made the decision to proceed with a public hearing. A public hearing will be held on September 14, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. The municipality will be monitoring the Public Health Directives to determine the format (virtual or in-person). This website will be updated in the future to provide all the necessary details of the Public Hearing format and a mailout will be provided to residents with the notification area. In the interim, if you have any question or concerns please contact the Planner.
A public open house was held on March 27, 2019 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm at the Gordon R. Snow Community Centre. The purpose of this open house was to update residents on the revised application based on resident feedback and current housing market preferences.
A public information meeting (PIM) was also held in October 2013, at Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary School, Fall River, to identify that the municipality has received an application, share information on the proposal and receive feedback on the proposal.
Following the public meeting, the updated proposal was reviewed by staff. As a final step a staff report and draft development agreement was prepared and forwarded to North West Community Council. The summary of minutes from both of the public information meetings will be included in the staff report. A public hearing is required prior to a Council decision on the matter.
An updated phosphorous assessment study was submitted by the applicant in January 2020. The staff report and proposed development agreement is currently under review. Once reviewed, the planning application will proceed to Community Council.
The NWCC will decide whether to approve or deny the proposed development based on the applicable policy criteria in the Planning District 17 and 17 Municipal Planning Strategy.
