Clayton Developments Limited has asked to amend the R-1 Zone of the Beaver Bank, Hammonds Plains, and Upper Sackville Land Use By-law to allow smaller residential lot sizes in where both municipal water and sewer services are available.
Clayton Developments Limited would like to reduce the minimum required lot size and street frontage requirements for all serviced lots in the R-1 Zone in the Beaver Bank, Hammonds Plains, and Upper Sackville Land Use By-law. Specifically, Clayton Developments Limited has asked to:
- Reduce the minimum required street frontage from 60 feet (18.3 metres) to 40 feet (12.2 metres) for R-1 Zoned lots with Municipal water and sewer services.
- Reduce the minimum required lot area from 6,000 square feet (557.4 square metres) to 4,000 square feet (371.6 square metres) for R-1 Zoned lots with Municipal water and sewer services.
While Clayton Developments Limited is specifically focused on having the ability to create smaller lots for the proposed expansion of Carriagewood Estates in Beaver Bank, their application is for an amendment that would apply to all R-1 Zoned lots with Municipal water and sewer services. Most of the undeveloped R-1 Zoned lots with Municipal services are the lands for the proposed Carriagewood Estates expansion (PID 00468694).
The Development Plans (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail, and include information related to a concept subdivision plan and a traffic study for the expansion of Carriagewood Estates.
The application will be considered under the Land Use By-law Amendment Process.
Currently this application is at the review team stage of the process where the request is reviewed by internal municipal staff from Development Engineering, Land Development and Subdivision, Transit, and Parks and Recreation, as well as externally by Halifax Water.
