192 Carleton Avenue Development Proposal

Re: 192 (194) Carleton Avenue Development Proposal
Applications for Consent and Minor Variances,
 City of Ottawa, Committee of Adjustment,
November 21, 2012

The owner of 192 Carleton Avenue, Henric Alfredsson, has applied to the City’s Committee of Adjustment for minor variance (lot width and lot area) and consent to subdivide the property into two separate parcels of land to allow the building of a 2-storey semi-detached dwelling.

Approval of the consent and minor variance applications would allow a reduced lot width and a reduced lot area for each of the two new parcels.  No other variances from the provisions of the Zoning By-law are requested.

The Committee of Adjustment, Committee Panel 1, will hear the application at its meeting of Wednesday November 21st starting at 1:00pm and will likely render its decision at that time.

The Champlain Park Community Association (CPCA) will be sending a letter to the Committee of Adjustment in support of the applications.

The CPCA met with the owner and his project designer, Michael Segretto of Miroca Design, on September 26th, before the submission of these applications, to discuss the CPCA’s goals and objectives for this community and had the opportunity to review the proposal and plans for the proposed semi-detached units. Based on the meeting and a review of the plans, the CPCA believes that this proposal represents development compatible with the goals and objectives of the Association and is in accordance with the City’s Official Plan and Infill Zoning By-law. In particular we noted that the front yard set-back was consistent with other set-backs along Carleton, that there is room for soft landscaping and for parking a car without infringing on the sidewalk, that the building is 2-storeys with a pitched roof, that the bulk/massing is mitigated by glazing and that small rear decks and stairs will help preserve the rear yard privacy of neighours.

Assessed owners of adjoining properties are entitled to attend and speak to the Committee of Adjustment.  If you would like to see a full set of plans showing the site, the unit floor plans and the building elevations or would like any further information please contact Duncan Bury at 193 Cowley Avenue (613 729-0499; la.db@sympatico.ca) or CoChair1 champlainpark@gmail.com
