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.
A public open house will be held on March 27, 2019 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm at the Gordon R. Snow Community Centre - Multi-purpose Room at 1359 Fall River Road, Fall River. The purpose of this open house is to update residents on the revised application based on resident feedback and current housing market preferences.
A public information meeting (PIM) was 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 will be reviewed by staff. As a final step a staff report and draft development agreement will be prepared and forwarded to North West Community Council. A 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.
Documents Submitted for Evaluation
