WSP is applying on behalf of the property owner, to rezone a portion of 1633 Sackville Drive, Middle Sackville, from R-6 (Rural Residential Zone) to R-4 (Multiple Unit Dwelling Zone), to allow for a multiple unit dwelling with four (4) residential dwelling units.
The applicant is proposing to rezone a portion of 1633 Sackville Drive from the R-6 (Rural Residential) Zone to R-4 (Multiple Unit Dwelling) Zone of the Sackville Land Use By-Law.
The permitted uses in the R-4 Zone (subject to the zone requirements) are as follows:
- Existing multiple unit dwellings in excess of six (6) units
- Multiple unit dwellings containing no more than six (6) units
- Open space uses
The applicant is proposing to rezone a portion of the site to allow for a four (4) unit multiple unit dwelling. Through a separate process, the applicant is pursuing a land subdivision to subdivide off a lot to leave the remaining single family dwelling on. So, as part of this application, the area where the existing single family dwelling is located is not requested to be rezoned.
The proposed building is designed as a 4-unit, 2-storey, townhouse-style multiple unit dwelling with separate exterior entrances for each unit.
A site plan depicting the portions of the property the applicant is proposing to re-zone, as well as the proposed building footprint, can be seen on their proposed site plan linked below.
The application will be considered under the Rezoning process
