5.1 Case 20923 - Application by Myles Baldwin, Shane Beehan and Jillian Demmons for a development agreement at 2720 Gottingen Street, Halifax to allow for a restaurant and pub (Narrows Public House).
Feedback is sought from Halifax Peninsula Planning Advisory Committee relative to the proposed application. The committee’s recommendation will be forwarded along with the staff report to Halifax and West Community Council.
The Halifax Municipal Planning Strategy designates the site (a HRM registered heritage property) for medium-density residential development. MPS policies provide for the development and change of use of heritage buildings, provided that the proposed use is compatible with the surrounding residential neighbourhood.
In preparing your recommendation to Halifax and West Community Council, kindly advise whether the proposal complies with the policies of the Halifax Municipal Planning Strategy in consideration of the following:
- Compatibility: Is the proposal to operate a pub/ lounge with restaurant compatible with the surrounding residential neighbourhood?
- Are the proposed hours of operation suitable to address any compatibility issues?
- Is an outdoor patio for patrons appropriate, given the surroundings, or should the pub/restaurant use be fully internal to the building?
- Should residential unit(s) be included as part of the proposal, within the proposed vacant spaces?
- Any other applicable land use issues/ impacts.
