This is a municipally-initiated project directing staff to consider amendments for the Sackville Drive Land Use By-law (LUB) to allow access to new multi-unit dwellings across LS (Large Scale Commercial) Zone lots.
This request for a staff report derives from lands on the Beaver Bank Connector and Sackville Drive (PIDs 40092777 and 40092769) which are zoned LS (Large Scale Commercial) and DC-3 (Downsview Complex-3). The LUB allows access via the LS Zone to the DC-3 Zone for existing multi-unit dwellings but not for new multi-unit dwellings. The result is that a new development on the zoned DC-3 land can be entered via the Beaver Bank Connector but there is no ability to leave the property across the LS Zone lands.
The application will be considered under the Land Use By-law Amendment process.
A staff report was considered by North West Community Council on Monday, October 4, 2021, at a virtual Community Council meeting. NWCC approved the recommended motion and staff have begun the planning process to consider amendments to the Sackville Drive Land Use By-law.
The application is currently in the public consultation stage. Planning staff invite you to provide feedback and share any comments you may have about this planning application. All comments and feedback are welcome. Please provide your feedback by Friday, November 26, 2021 to Dean MacDougall (see contact information at the bottom of this page). Following public consultation, municipal staff will draft the land use by-law amendments and write a staff report for review by the North West Community Council.
