The builder’s Agent provided the attached notice, inviting comments on this proposal.

Of note:

This proposal is for a semi-detached.  This is a large lot at 50′ X 130′ (15.24 m X 39.68 m).  The builder plans deeper-than-required front and rear yard setbacks.  Before the Infill-2 By-law provisions came into effect, the allowable height in Champlain Park was 11 metres (measured to the midline of a peaked roof or the top of a flat roof) and the rear yard setback was 7.5 metres.  Now, maximum allowable height has been reduced to 8.5 metres and minimum rear yard setback has been increased according to a sliding scale, based on lot depth.  The table below shows what is being proposed for 212 Northwestern in relation to what the By-law provisions allow.

Champlain Park Exception 2159 212 Northwestern Proposed
Front Yard Setback 6 metres (20 feet) Min. 8.32 (27.3 feet)
By-Law (Infill 1&2) provisions 212 Northwestern Proposed
Height (to midline of roof) 8.5 metres (28 feet) Max. 7.334 metres (24 feet)
Rear Yard Setback 11.887 metres (39 feet) Min 14.37 metres (47.145 feet)
Driveway width 2.75 metres (9 feet) Max. 2.74 metres (9 feet)
