10.1.1 Case 22314: Application by Wilson Wong, to rezone lands at 3850 Robie Street, Halifax from R-2 to R-2A to allow for a 6 unit residential building.
Jason Wong has applied to rezone his property at 3850 Robie Street, Halifax from R-2 (General Residential Zone) to R-2A (General Residential Conversion Zone). Currently, there are 6 units in the dwelling and under the current Zoning only 4 units can be occupied. Rezoning from R-2 to R-2A will allow the legal occupation of the remaining two units.
The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:
• Designated Urban Settlement under the Regional Plan
• Designated Residential under the Halifax Municipal Planning Strategy
• Zoned R-2 under the Halifax Peninsula Land Use By-law
• Originally built as a 4 unit dwelling, it was converted to house 6 units
• R-2 Zoning allows up to 4 units, leaving the 2 additional unoccupied
• The R-2A zone would allow the legal re-activation of these two units
• R-2A zone has strict standards regarding the conversion of existing housing
• 50% of the units are required to be a minimum of 800 square feet in area
In preparing the recommendation to Halifax and West Community Council, the Committee is being asked to assess potential impact on the community. The following is before the Committee:
• Compatibility with the established neighbourhood.
• Impacts on adjacent properties.
• Preservation of neighbourhood context.
• Ensuring varied housing options in neighbourhood.
